NETS Ambulance - South Coast, NSW

September 19, 2015

In 2015, KidzFix delivered a brand new, fully equipped intensive care Ambulance! The cost of the ambulance project was $180,000.

 With the generous support of our KidzFix entrants, supports and major sponsor Bendigo Bank, we were thrilled to achieve our biggest project yet!

 The Newborn & Paediatric Emergency Transport Service is the only service of its kind in Australia; providing expert clinical advice, clinical co-ordination, emergency treatment and stabilisation and inter-hospital transport for very sick babies and children up to the age of 16 years. It operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

 Not just a transport service, NETS provides a referral service for hospitals. NETS ensures no matter where someone lives, they can be assured that their baby or child will receive the same commitment to care as if living next to a children's hospital.

Did you know? 

  • One in 49 in NSW will use NETS sometime during their childhood.

  • In regional and rural areas, the chance of using NETS is even higher - at 1 in 38.

  • An average NETS mission takes over 6 hours and costs the equivalent of 1 to 4 days of intensive care; depending on the time and distance involved
