Two remarkable hospitals and their dedicated teams of doctors and nurses face the daily challenge of treating sick children from every corner of the vast wilderness state of Western Australia.
In Perth, one of the most remote cites in the world, two state-of-the-art hospitals have the job of caring for the health of every child from every part of a State that’s bigger than Western Europe.
Many arrive through the doors of the Emergency Department for urgent, life-saving treatment. Others are flown thousands of kilometres for operations that will change their lives. Specialist doctors and nursing teams must deal with every emergency imaginable, from a bead up a toddler’s nose to a brain tumour discovered in a young school girl. In the biggest health precinct on earth, each unpredictable day brings new a new set of dramas.
