Don’t worry – from December 11 2019 you will be able to find the latest information about your local area on the MyHospitals webpages on the AIHW website, along with many more reports and data on a range of health and welfare topics.

In some cases, the way you find information has changed. If you need help finding anything, please contact the AIHW.

Once the new MyHospitals website has been created, you will be able to access old archived versions of the previously published data through Trove, the National Library of Australia’s web archive. Please note the interactive content will not work in the archived version.

Waiting times for surgery

Elective surgery waiting times: by urgency category

Elective surgery is planned surgery that can be booked in advance as a result of a specialist clinical assessment resulting in placement on an elective surgery waiting list. The treating doctor determines how urgently surgery is needed, then assigns the patient to one of three elective surgery urgency categories – Category 1 (surgery is recommended within 30 days), Category 2 (surgery is recommended within 90 days), or Category 3 (surgery is recommended within 365 days).

This section shows the percentage of patients who received their elective surgery within the recommended time for that urgency category.
