PLEASE NOTE: The COVID-19 pandemic presents an unprecedented challenge to health systems around the world. As part of our response to increase capacity and manage the impact, there has been national agreement to suspend public reporting of hospital performance from March 2020 until further notice. This aligns to the requirement to postpone elements of routine and planned elective surgery and outpatient activity across Australia. We want to reassure you that we have one of the best health systems in the world and are well prepared to tackle novel coronavirus.

Summary files of 3 paediatric emergency departments with information on activity and performance measures by hospital for the latest month for patients under 14. Hospital performance and open data are refreshed by the end of the third week of each month.


  • As of July 2018 the Emergency Department dataset includes an additional 38 facilities. The 30 rural hospitals on the former Rural Emergency Department dataset have also been added to the Emergency Department dataset and will not be displayed on a separate page any more. As a result, the Emergency Department and Emergency Department Paediatrics datasets now display data for 97 facilities.

  • As of November 2018 the Emergency Department dataset includes Mount Morgan, Blackwater, Moura, Springsure and Woorabinda Hospitals.
