WSLHD's bushfire response
This week, WSLHD deployed specially trained staff to provide medical assistance and support to bushfire-affected communities in Batemans Bay.
So far, three WSLHD emergency department clinicians and five mental health clinicians have been deployed to the area.
This support is part of a state-wide response coordinated by the National Critical Care and Trauma Response Centre and the NSW Health Emergency Management Unit, which has deployed Australian Medical Assistance Teams (AUSMAT) including doctors, nurses, paramedics, radiographers, mental health clinicians and pharmacists to disaster zones.
