Only one NSW Northern Rivers hospital met the state 2013 National Emergency Access Target, Jan-Mar 2013

The 2013 NSW target is for 76% of all patients to depart hospital emergency departments within four hours of arrival by the end of the year.

The NHPA Media Backgrounder released on 25 July 2013 shows that only a handful of hospitals have met the lower state target set for the first quarter, with only one Northern Rivers hospital listed:

In the 2012 the New South Wales performance time target for emergency departments was 69%.
