The 10th anniversary of the 2002 Bali bombings will occur on October 12th 2012.

More than 200 people were killed including eighty-eight Australians when a terroist bomb exploded outside the Sari Club on Julan Legian. Many injured people were given rudimentary treatment at Bali’s Sanglah Hospital. Sixty two injured Australians were flown to Royal Darwin Hospital for emergency treatment.

Since that terrible moment in time the staff at Sanglah Hospital have been given ongoing training and support by medical professionals from Darwin.

Dr Len Notaras who is the head of Darwin’s National Critical Care and Trauma Centre said the ongoing training helps the Sanglah Hospital treat 65,000 Australians every year.

For Australians travelling to Bali and who may experience an incident or an episode occurs while away, Dr. Notaras said we can now actually become involved much more quickly because we know the individual staff members up there.
