Canberra has the Worst Emergency Wait Times in the Country


The latest Australian Institute of Health and Welfare report has revealed Canberra continued to have the worst emergency department wait times in 2019-20.

Only 48 per cent of Canberra patients were seen on time which was well below the national average of 74 per cent

It follows a reduction in emergency wait times in every state and territory as COVID-19 saw the number of hospital visits drop.
