One in 49 NSW children will use NETS sometime during their childhood. This
is not surprising when you consider that of over 250 hospitals in the
region; only ten have intensive care facilities for sick newborns and only
three have intensive care for kids. For regional and rural areas, the
chance of using NETS is even higher - 1 in 38.
NETS covers an area of 815,810km2 across rural and metropolitan NSW and the
ACT providing a lifesaving service.
Our dedicated teams of doctors and nurses provide expert clinical advice,
clinical co-ordination, stabilisation and emergency treatment and retrieval
for very sick children 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
Although NETS is funded by NSW Health for staffing costs we rely on
community support to maintain and renew the specialised intensive care
equipment and ambulances that we use.
Thanks to community support, it is possible for NETS to make that extra
difference and continue our lifesaving service.
You can help save a child's life by donating to NETS.
