Time of arrival

The time of presentation at the ED is defined as the earliest occasion of being registered clerically or triaged.

In 2017–18, there were more presentations on Mondays than on other days.

ED resources are used unevenly throughout the average day, with more than two‑thirds (70%) of ED presentations occurring between 8 am and 8 pm.

Resuscitation presentations are more evenly distributed throughout the day than for other triage categories. The highest proportions of Non‑urgent presentations occurred between 8 am and 11 am.
