Emergency Department Patient Survey
The Emergency Department Patient Survey asks for feedback from people who have recently attended a public NSW emergency department.
Each year we send surveys to about 80,000 people approximately three months after their emergency department visit.
The 2016-17 data is the fourth year of results and reflects the experiences of almost 18,000 patients at emergency departments in 82 public hospitals in NSW.
Almost 18000 patients told us about their experience of care in a NSW public hospital emergency department
Overall, most patients rated their care in the emergency departments as very good 62, good 28%
Three in four patients said during their visit to the emergency department they felt very safe (76%)
A majority of patients said the care they received in the emergency department 'definitely' helped them (69%)
