Emergency department website goes live

NSW Health has launched a website offering real-time information on the number of patients waiting for treatment in 58 emergency departments across the state. The site, http://www.emergencywait.health.nsw.gov.au provides information on waiting times for treatment - whether it be at the local hospital or a neighbouring hospital – and how to access alternatives such as the local GP or a free 24 hour advice line staffed by a Registered Nurse. The information will assist people get quicker access to care and in spreading the load between busy emergency departments.
