It has been stated by Professor Stephen Rashford, “The only good thing about wars is that they result in medical innovation. Often, the techniques make a world of difference to patients who are losing too much blood.” He previously stated, “HARU is a patient-centric initiative providing a seamless approach for people with the most severe traumatic injuries from the time of the injury to when they receive hospital care and beyond”.

The paramedics provide care at a level that is seen nowhere in Australia, this is supported by extensive training and very strong clinical oversight by senior Trauma physicians.
