Trauma Service

Over many years, we have built a close relationship with all the major public and private hospitals within South Australia, along with the Work Health Clinics and our local general practitioners.

The most common types of injuries we treat through this service include:

  • hand injuries;
  • facial trauma;
  • motor vehicle accidents (including patients with third-party insurance claims);
  • work-related injuries (including patients with WorkCover claims);
  • sporting injuries; and
  • all types of domestic injuries, including minor burns.


In almost all cases, these injuries will first need to be assessed in an emergency department, walk-in clinic, or by your local GP. This way, the injury can be fully assessed with X-rays and other scans taken. The treating medical practitioner is then welcome to contact us when the patient and injury are stabilised.
