Westmead. Careflight - 24 years of service

Careflight, based at Westmead, has flown more than 10,000 patients since it carried its first patient 24 years. All up it has cared for 20,000 patients by road and air over that time. The latest chapter in its delivery of services is the provision of the Top End Aero Medical Service through an interim agreement with the Northern Territory Department of Health and Families. The new deal involves providing the department with four KingAir turbo prop aircraft, the clinical co-ordination centre and nursing staff, in addition to the jet and helicopter which Careflight has operated from Darwin for some years.
