Waiting times

  • Please note that ACT Health reports waiting times three months behind the current month to allow for validation of elective surgery waiting list data.
  • The 50th percentile tells you the length of time that half the people on the list have waited for surgery, and the 90th percentile tells you the length of time that the majority of people (90%) have been waiting for their surgery. The 90th percentile can only be recorded when 10 or more cases performed.
  • Days waited for those patients recorded at the 50th and 90th percentile may show increases due to the large number of long wait patients receiving surgery in our public hospitals and under the Private Provider Program.
  • Elective waiting times may vary between procedures. For more information regarding elective surgery at a Public Hospital please contact the Elective Surgery Information Service on (02) 6205 1122.
