New Zealand’s flying intensive care unit.

The NZ flying doctors is an intensive care unit with highly trained medical staff and specialist equipment. Our patients receive a seamless level of care from bed to bed. We operate 24/7 transfer services for critical care burn victims, spinal injury patients, neonatal transfers, trauma victims, surgery transfers, and blood + equipment supplies.
