What you'll be doing

'NETS' - NSW is the state wide clinical service for medical retrieval of critically ill newborns, infants and children in New South Wales (NSW), Australia. Most patients are acutely unwell and require careful assessment and planning prior to transport. Some problems are solved without transport. The NETS Consultant coordinates acute clinical calls to NETS; in collaboration with specialists from referral hospitals and specialty units. The NETS Consultant triages cases into being a consultation, transfer by local or regional teams or retrieval (by a NETS team or other appropriate neonatal or paediatric retrieval team). The NETS consultant contributes to the call and case review process, education (internal and external), as well as research and quality improvement activities.

NETS service extends beyond transport in that it provides a point of clinical triage for patients too sick for normal ambulance transfer between hospitals. NETS connects clinicians in referring and referral hospitals in a telephone conference to discuss the best treatment and appropriateness of transfer or retrieval. This extends to obstetric cases when maternal transfer no longer seems possible and a neonatal retrieval appears inevitable. 
The Consultant is responsible for the delivery of the highest quality care to the paediatric patient and their family. The right care in the right time-frame with the right referral hospital engaged and the right solution(s) requires taking responsibility for solving the problem. NETS seeks continuous improvement across the critical care patient journey. Consultants participate in case review, quality, educational and service improvement activities. They act as an advocate for the paediatric patient and their family, in accordance with the guidelines set by NSW Health, SCHN and international benchmarks.
