The first quarter SHED project results are currently being extracted for the 6 participating Emergency Departments. Between January and March close to 5000 people presented to an Emergency Department and saw a clinician. Overall the patient gender breakdown was fairly even, and weekdays saw higher patient volumes than weekends. When we have extracted a full years’ worth of data we will be able to determine trends in ED presentation. Over the next month the project team will be visiting participating hospitals to feed back the first quarter findings to the ED staff. We would like to thank the hospitals and staff for their continuing participation and we look forward to our next visit.
