Waiting times for surgery for malignant cancers are a measure of access to treatment that can maintain quality of life or be potentially life-saving. Without timely surgery, these cancers may progress and those with early-stage disease may face a reduced opportunity for cure.
In Australia, there are no maximum acceptable waiting time benchmarks for planned cancer surgery. Surgeries are prioritised using the same waiting list system as other planned surgeries. The patients covered by this report were assigned to planned surgery waiting lists by surgeons as urgent or semi-urgent cases. Urgent cases are expected to be completed within 30 days, while semi-urgent cases are meant to be completed within 90 days.
