Timely ACAT assessments

Older Queenslanders tell us that wait times for Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) assessments in some districts can be over four weeks, sometimes between 8-12 weeks to even be assessed, and wait times to be admitted to a facility can be even longer.

Why the contribution is important

An inability to access timely assessments can block throughput, so it’s important to make these assessments timely and effective.

    ACAT wait times in our Hospital are NOT an issue, for inpatients requiring urgent assessment. Community delays for assessments are due to the extreme demand for service.
