A decade on.

This year marks 10 years since we officially began delivering the Top End Medical Retrieval Service contract on behalf of the Northern Territory Government. The contract built on our existing Jet services in Darwin and was awarded following the successful delivery of a 2010 interim contract.
What started as a small seven-nurse operation has now grown into a fully integrated service with a staff of 216! A huge thank you to the Top End team for their continued dedication throughout the years – particularly during the recent COVID-19 outbreak. From winching from helicopters to delivering babies in the back of our planes – no day is ever the same.
We look forward to the next decade taking the hospital to the patient, no matter where they are in the Territory!
