National Critical Care and Trauma Response Centre
The National Critical Care and Trauma Response Centre (NCCTRC) is a key element in the Australian Government's disaster and emergency medical response to regional disasters.
The NCCTRC’s role is to make sure Royal Darwin Hospital can provide a rapid response in the event of a mass casualty incident in the region.
The centre has provided significant financial support to Royal Darwin Hospital to improve the ability of the hospital’s surgical and trauma divisions.
It also provides clinical and academic leadership in disaster and trauma care, as well as a local response capability and an international education, training and exercising capacity.
The NCCTRC is funded by the Australian Government through the Northern Territory Department of Health and was established following the 2002 Bali bombings.
