Medical Services - Northmead, NSW
CareFlight provides the highest standard of rapid response critical care to the ill & injured. We use helicopters, planes & road ambulances to bring a hospital level of care to our patients.
CareFlight is an Australian aeromedical charity, established in 1986.
CareFlight's mission is to save lives, speed recovery and serve the community by providing the highest standard of rapid response critical care.
We use helicopters, aeroplanes and medi-jets to bring a hospital level of care to the critically ill and injured. Our aircrew, medical teams and coordinators work closely together to ensure that patients receive the best care as soon as possible. It's about bringing the right team to the right patient at the right time.
CareFlight doctors and nurses are specially trained in pre-hospital and transport medicine. They care for severely injured patients who need emergency treatment at the scene of the incident. They also transport seriously ill patients who need to be moved between hospitals.
Currently, CareFlight aeromedical teams care for over 5,000 patients a year.
CareFlight has a strong focus on education. We hold teaching accreditation with the critical care colleges of anaesthesia, intensive care and emergency medicine. Over the years CareFlight has trained hundreds of critical care specialists in the unique and challenging environment of pre-hospital and transport medicine.
CareFlight is also about innovation. Flying critical care doctors to the seriously ill and injured; introducing night vision goggle technology for safer night flying; conducting a clinical trial to investigate the benefits of early physician intervention for patients with head injuries; these are all Australian 'firsts'.
Everything CareFlight has achieved over the years has been with the support of the community we serve. That loyal and generous support has made it possible for CareFlight to spread our wings across Australia and beyond. We rely on our many partners and friends to provide the resources to make the CareFlight difference.
In return, they know they can count on us.
