Adequate preparation for a bushfire can help protect your patients, your practice and your local community.
In response to the ongoing bushfires affecting communities across NSW SNHN have created a bushfires information page to provide health professionals and the wider Northern Sydney community, with relevant information.
The webpage includes specific advice for health professionals regarding offering professional support in affected areas, important contacts if your practice or patients are affected, as well as how you can be involved in the emergency response plan for the Northern Sydney region.
You can also support your patients and clients by directing them to the Community Information section, which gives health advice, instructions on emergency preparation, practical and economic aid, and mental health and well being support.
