Summary of activities

CareFlight was founded in 1986 as an aeromedical charity with the mission to save lives, speed recovery and serve the community. Today, we deliver services nationally. Our critical care doctors, paramedics and nurses are specially trained in emergency and trauma, pre-hospital and remote medicine and we use helicopters, jet aircraft, turbo-prop planes and road vehicles to reach and treat patients wherever they are. CareFlight provide advanced trauma treatment and critical medical care to seriously ill and injured patients as quickly as possible to give them the greatest chance of recovery so they can resume their lives. CareFlight runs accredited training for clinical specialists; operate extensive aviation and logistic training for our employees and other organisations; run a range of free education and training programs in regional, rural and remote areas, and we partner with emergency service organisations, defence forces and businesses to deliver our expertise. Over the reporting period CareFlight: Maintained or exceeded all contractual and operational KPIs for service availability, including a world’s best practice average tasking to take-off time of four minutes for the rapid response trauma service. Cared for more than 8,800 patients, about half from predominantly Indigenous remote communities. Continued to invest in research and innovation relating specifically to clinical technology to improve patient outcomes. Completed regional and remote community education programs for emergency services first responders, at no cost to participants. These courses aim to provide life-saving trauma management techniques and skills to keep patients alive until formal medical help arrives. Provided advanced clinical training for about 32 senior specialists anaesthetics, intensive care and emergency registrars.
