Year in Review

The Year in Review provides an update on our recent accomplishments and challenges and our progress towards achieving our strategic priorities.

OUT-OF-HOSPITAL Cardiac Arrest (OHCA) is a recognised public health problem worldwide and survival rates from ambulance-attended OHCA are generally low.

There is a great deal of variation in survival rates from OHCA between, and within, countries. Measuring and reporting on OHCA survival rates is an indicator of the quality of clinical care provided by ambulance services. NSW Ambulance developed its Out-of-hospital Cardiac Arrest Registry as a clinical quality initiative. The Registry contains cases attended by NSW Ambulance clinicians starting from 1 January 2017.

The 2019 report is available for download. This is the third report from the NSW Ambulance Cardiac Arrest Registry.

Bureau of Health Information reports provide independent information about the performance of the public healthcare system in NSW. A report is released every three months, and provides information on NSW Ambulance activity and performance.

The Report on Government Services (ROGs) provides information on the equity, effectiveness and efficiency of government services in Australia. The report is released annually and provides information on NSW Ambulance activity and performance compared to other states.
