Early Activation or Consultation

If critical care clinical advice is required or it is anticipated that transfer to an MTS will be needed, early retrieval consultation and activation is essential (phone ARV on 1300 368 661).

Early retrieval activation ensures access to critical care advice and a more effective retrieval response.

Early activation and timely critical care transfer improves clinical outcomes for the patient.

If you are undecided, call the ARV coordinator, who can provide expert guidance and advice over the phone or via tele/videoconference, and link to an MTS as required.
