History

WantsNETS WA was previously known as WANTS: the Western Australian Neonatal Transport Service. WANTS was one of the first formal neonatal transport services to be established within Australia, when pioneering neonatologist Fred Grauaug recognised the need for an expert retrieval service, given the vast size of Western Australia. From humble beginnings in the 1970’s, NETS WA has evolved into a busy transport service, with 2 Consultant medical staff, 3 full-time Neonatal Fellows, 1 Clinical Nurse Consultant, a dedicated ambulance and our own drivers.
