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.
They use helicopters, aeroplanes and medi-jets to bring a hospital level of care to the critically ill and injured. Their 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.
CareFlight has a strong focus on education. They 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.
Everything CareFlight has achieved over the years has been with the support of the community they serve. That loyal and generous support has made it possible for CareFlight to spread their wings across Australia and beyond. They rely on their many partners and friends to provide the resources to make the CareFlight difference.See more
