Ms ARMITAGE question to LEADER of the GOVERNMENT in the LEGISLATIVE
COUNCIL, Mrs HISCUTT
Will the honourable Leader please advise -
With regard to waiting times for colonoscopies and endoscopies categories 1, 2 and 3 at both the Royal Hobart Hospital and the Launceston General Hospital, what is the 75th percentile wait for these categories at each hospital?
Mr President, I thank the member for Launceston for her question.
I will read the figures for categories 1, 2 and 3 in that order -
Royal Hobart Hospital: category 1 - 265; category 2 - 607; category 3 -
Launceston General Hospital: category 1 - 207; category 2 - 421; category
3 - 265.
Importantly, the revised 2019-20 Tasmanian Health Service plan provides an
additional 2248 endoscopy procedures.
