Welcome to Portland District Health

This dashboard updates hourly. This dashboard has been optimised for viewing on a mobile device. If you are on a PC, you can select the 3 dots (…) in the right hand corner of the dashboard to expand to full screen.

Even during normal activity, staff are often busy and waiting times around an hour can be expected.

As we get busier, the number of people in the waiting room increases and the time you may need to wait  for treatment gets longer.

When we are extremely busy, the waiting room often gets crowded and some people may need to wait more than four hours.
