Orthopaedic surgery had one of the highest rates of cancellation2

As at the end of December 2021, 94,807 patients​ were on the waiting list for elective surgery in​ the NSW public health system alone.1

"Although essential, cancellations place a heavy burden on patients and society. Patients' conditions may deteriorate, worsening their quality of life as they wait for rescheduled surgery."

42% of Australians believe that there is still a risk of contracting COVID-19 in a healthcare setting with close to half (49.1%) delaying or cancelling healthcare appointments as a result of this risk.3
