Every year, approximately 900 sick or preterm babies born in Western Australia need to be transferred to either Perth Children’s Hospital or King Edward Hospital for intensive care.
The Newborn Emergency Transport Service of Western Australia (NETS WA) is a specialist team of doctors and nurses solely dedicated to providing neonatal intensive care during transport.
The service operates in the world’s largest retrieval area, spanning over 2500km, providing support to metropolitan, regional and remote centres.
NETS WA also offers expert neonatal advice and support to doctors, nurses and midwives via the NETS WA Hotline, ensuring intensive care begins as soon as possible.
