Waiting times for Elective Surgery
The AMA calls for better waiting time for elective surgery. Tasmania continues to lag the rest of the country in waiting times for elective surgery. The number of category 2 patients seen within the recommended time of 90 days for elective surgery has continued to decline. Only 49 per cent of category 2 patients on elective surgery waiting lists were seen within the recommended time of 90 days.
