The whole team at NETS would like to wish everyone a very happy
Christmas, a successful New Year and a safe holiday period.
We really appreciate the support of the community in helping NETS to do
what we do.
Clinicians in hospitals across NSW, the ACT and beyond ask for NETS'
help between a handful and 30 times per day, averaging 11 per day.
We appreciate the participation of regional and tertiary experts in
joining with NETS to advise on emergency care from the earliest time;
often well before any emergency transport occurs.
We value our NETS' teams which travel by NETS' ambulance, or sometimes
helicopter or plane to reach the bedside and deliver intensive care
before and during transport to a hospital which can continue the
necessary care and treatment.
We acknowledge the role of our emergency vehicle operators who transport
our teams by road, the biomedical staff who keep our life support
equipment ready and reliable, the technical experts in IT and
Telemedicine who maintain our communications, data and Vision-for-Life
tools to help us make the best plans for our patients and support the
best care for children at a distance and our administrative staff who
ensure the business of clinical care continues around the clock.
At this time of the year, there will be festivities for families and
communities and hopefully many will have a break from the normal daily
activities of life to celebrate.
You should know that NETS will still be working through this period as
sick babies, infants and children will, unfortunately, still need our
help as much now as at any time.
