Delivered by a dedicated team of professionals, using the latest in aviation, medical and communications technology, and supported by avast number of volunteers and supporters, the RFDS is vital for those that live, work and travel in rural and remote Australia.
Medical services needed by people living in rural and remote areas of Australia are no different to services required in our large cities, but the vast distances that small rural populations have to overcome to access health services, provide a real challenge. The Royal Flying Doctor Service works to assist country Australians in many ways.
