The Auditor-General’s office in New South Wales (NSW) has issued the latest survey of public hospital emergency department performance. It shows an improvement on 2013, despite a rise in patient numbers to close to 2.7 million. However waiting times at hospitals in the Sydney, Central Coast and Western NSW health districts were unacceptably long, as the facilities failed to meet the standard of four fifths of patients being treated within 10 minutes. Ambulance response times meanwhile have fallen to 10.8 minutes, in the biggest improvement since 2009
