SA Health’s year-round hospital demand portal is updated quarterly with new strategies and initiatives we’ve introduced aimed at managing this demand, and those that we’re planning to implement to manage patient flow across the public health system.

There are also links to information on the preventative measures that the community can take to minimise illness throughout the year, and alternative care options for non-life threatening injuries and illnesses, as opposed to presenting to a hospital ED.

As South Australia continues to adequately manage and control the COVID-19 pandemic, we are working to ensure that the effective and viable initiatives are in place to deal with demand on our hospitals.
