Live Emergency Department Waiting Times (Again)


Live Emergency Department Waiting Times - all data pertaining to the queues in A&E: Length (number of patients / average services time) of Queue; Average Waiting Times for new case interventions (by Triage category: Life Threatening / serious / not serious); Average Waiting Times for admission to hospital; etc. It's 2 years since my initial request - a data not collected / not available response is really not acceptable now.

    The HSE advise that they have a live or almost live feed of Emergency Department hospital waiting times for 21 hospitals, with scope to include up to 26 sites, this will not for the foreseeable future be rolled out to all sites with Emergency Departments . This data is also not fully UAT’d (user accepted tested) so for the moment would not be suitable for opendata, but once it is UAT’d and relevant permissions applied to use the data, the HSE could look at planning to make it available as Open Data.
