On 2 February 2016 the Productivity Commission issued its report on government services, including Health volume E which includes performance reporting for primary and community health, public hospitals and mental health management.

The report is quite detailed, however some media reports have focused on local issues, such as the adverse event reporting rate in NSW public hospitals. Harriet Alexander writes of 53 sentinel events in 2013-2014, a higher number than the previous 5 years (mostly accounted for by medication errors).

The report contains a range of other data, such  as birthweight trends, preventable diseases, cancer occurrences and the like.
