A review of the state’s health systems found the state has “significant deficiencies” in health services.
The review by the University of NSW’s Centre for Health Performance looked at how much funding had been provided to hospitals, what services were delivered and how long it took to deliver those services.
The review found that “the state’s hospitals and community health centres receive a total of $23.6 billion a year, which is less than one-quarter of the total $50 billion budget for health services across the country”.
In South Australia, there were 6,500 hospital beds in the state.
