Australia’s 'robust primary care system' sets fine example

Global report has Australia ranked at the top
accident and emergency

Australia and Germany have the lowest emergency department use on a per capita basis, according to a seven-country comparison of acute unscheduled care.

The authors of the global report attribute this to “robust primary care systems” in both countries.

The findings show that just 22% of Australians and Germans used emergency departments in the past two years.
