CHIEF Minister Gallagher has announced real time data from Canberra’s emergency rooms is now available online.
“The website shows real time data about the current activity of both Calvary and Canberra Hospital emergency departments including the number of patients currently waiting for treatment and the number of patients likely to present within the following two hours, “ Katy said.
“The website also reminds people of other options for receiving care and treatment, including the use of the walk-in centres and local General Practice.
“It is designed to help people make an informed decision about the best and quickest place to seek treatment, particularly for patients with non life or limb threatening conditions.
“The emergency data website is one way the ACT government is providing the community with up to date information to assist them in making decisions about where to seek treatment.
“The real-time emergency data website will also enable the community to see how busy these departments are and highlight some of the positive work our emergency departments are doing,” the Chief Minister concluded.
