Outback ER is a unique series that sheds light on the important work of rural ER teams, including the Broken Hill Base Hospital Emergency Department, the Ambulance Service of NSW and the Royal Flying Doctors Service. With remoteness, lack of resources and recruitment all major challenges - it takes a special kind of medical team to work in a place like this.
From snakebites and amputations, to farm accidents and heart attacks, every admission brings a new challenge. Outback ER introduces us to the diverse population of Broken Hill as we meet some extraordinary characters and witness real human drama. This unforgiving desert landscape breeds a population of no nonsense locals who live hard, play hard and often feel bullet-proof. With some patients driving themselves 450km to see a doctor and the nearest CT scanner in a different state, we see just how different things are in one of Australia's more remote and geographically unique places.
