Have you been to hospital lately?

ADMISSIONS to Central Queensland's public hospital have soared over the Christmas period with the number of patients presenting to the emergency department spiking to 25% above average.

Rockhampton figures, released later today, are expected to be similar to Mackay Hospital's results where 450 people presented at the hospital's Emergency Department.
