Canberra Hospital experiencing high level of presentations


The emergency department at Canberra Hospital is currently experiencing a high volume of presentations which has prompted Canberra Health Services to remind the community going to the ED should only be for genuinely urgent matters.

At the moment, for people who are presenting with non-urgent matters, the wait time is between four to six hours.

People with non urgent health matters are being asked to head to local walk in centers located in Tuggeranong, Belconnen, Dickson and Gungahlin.
