Western NSW Public Hospitals Improve Performance Through Busy Quarter

Written by: The Cowra Phoenix


The latest Bureau of Health Information (BHI) Healthcare Quarterly report shows Western NSW Local Health District (WNSWLHD) improved in a number of key planned surgery and emergency department (ED) performance measures despite increasingly high demand for hospital care.

Mark Spittal, WNSWLHD Chief Executive, thanked staff for their commitment and dedication to delivering high-quality care to communities throughout another busy period in July to September 2023. Throughout the third quarter of 2023, there were 52,368 attendances to the District’s EDs, which was an increase of 2,053 attendances when compared to the same quarter of 2022.

More than 30,000 presentations were in the semi-urgent (triage four) and non-urgent (triage five) categories, with a 13.4 per cent increase in non-urgent presentations compared to the same quarter of the previous year.
