Hospital bed occupancy rates

Antony Andrews made this Official Information request to Southern District Health Board

The request was successful.

From: Antony Andrews

Dear Southern District Health Board,

Tēnā koutou,

Please find below my Official information request under the Official Information Act 1982:

1. Bed occupancy rates at the public hospital/hospitals from July 2007 to June 2016. Please note that I would like monthly data on this. However, if monthly data is not available, please specify the reason.

2. If monthly data is unavailable, the next preference will be quarterly data, if quarterly is not available then I will accept half-yearly. Furthermore, as last resort yearly data.

3. I am also willing to accept data on bed occupancy rates at random intervals within a year.

While not crucial, please also include the method used to calculate bed-occupancy rates by your DHB.

Ngā mihi,

Antony Andrews
