“Working in the Emergency and Trauma Department at The Royal Melbourne Hospital can be challenging. For whatever reason a patient comes to us, be it an accident or a severe-illness, we see people who are at their most vulnerable.”

Professor George Braitberg, Director of Emergency Medicine, The Royal Melbourne Hospital

As one of two of Victoria’s adult trauma centres, the RMH Emergency Department (ED) treats 4000 traumas each year, with up to 1000 of those being classified as major traumas.

Professor George Braitberg, Director of Emergency Medicine at The Royal Melbourne Hospital, has been dealing with the aftermath of road trauma for almost three decades. To George and his team, treating a patient from a trauma is like conducting an orchestra – everyone has their role to play.

You can also play a role by making a donation today. You will be helping our frontline staff who will be standing by with everything they need deliver the best possible urgent care.

The Trauma team involves people from across various specialities of the hospital including Emergency, Neurosurgical, Orthopaedic, Plastic, Surgical, Intensive Care, Anaesthetic, Urological, Ophthalmological, Maxillofacial, ENT and Allied Health services.
