NSW Health - alleged misreporting of hospital waiting list data

The ICAC investigated whether any person deliberately misreported or dishonestly manipulated hospital waiting list data at Prince of Wales, St George, St Vincents, Sydney/Sydney Eye and Bankstown Hospitals and the two area health services responsible for those hospitals - South Eastern Sydney and South Western Sydney Area Health Services.

In its report on this investigation, made to the NSW Department of Health on 13 February 2004 under section 14(2) of the ICAC Act and subsequently made public, the ICAC made no findings of corrupt conduct against any person. The ICAC made nine corruption prevention recommendations to the Department of Health to address identified deficiencies in waiting list guidelines.
