We have recently merged our Trauma and Acute Surgical Unit to form the new ACUTE CARE SURGERY UNIT. This unit is responsible for all emergency general surgery and trauma admissions.
Liverpool Hospital is the designated major trauma service for the South Western Sydney Local Health District (SWSLHD). It serves the population of South Western Sydney (in excess of 1,000,000), acting as a referral hospital for one rural and four urban hospitals: Fairfield, Campbelltown, Camden, Bankstown and Bowral.
As the major trauma service we are here to serve, rather than manage our urban and rural colleagues. Our mission is to optimise trauma patient care in the region. To achieve this we must strive to be a world leader in trauma care aiming to improve communication and ensure patient outcomes are continuously monitored and improved.
