About CareFlight

Our mission is to save lives, speed recovery and serve the community.

CareFlight is dedicated to providing the highest standard of rapid response critical care to the ill and injured. Our specially trained doctors and nurses use helicopters, aeroplanes, medi-jets and road ambulances to bring a hospital level of care to our patients.


MediSim Program

CareFlight will be taking our national trauma care training program to South Australia, the Northern Territory and Western Australia between March and July this year.
