In the last years, the Hunter New England and Central Coast has been affected by various disasters, including floods, bushfires, drought, the Covid-19 pandemic and a rodent plague. ​

Emergencies and disasters may affect primary care providers and their staff, and the community they work and live in, and may cause multisystemic losses. ​
