Our Mission / Objective

Since 1928, the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) has provided 24-hour emergency medical services to those who live, work or travel in rural and remote Australia.

The RFDS has expanded its traditional role to deliver a broad range of primary and preventative health care services to rural and remote communities.

The Service also provides urgent aeromedical transfers of patients between regional and metropolitan hospitals to higher levels of care.

Today, the RFDS assists more than 300,000 people across the country each year – that’s one person every two minutes.

Our services include:

  • Radio and telephone medical consultations with isolated patients;

 

  • The operation of the Marree, Andamooka and Marla Health Services;

 

  • Aboriginal Health Coordinator with a focus on service to Aboriginal communities;

 

  • Remote Oral Health Care Program which delivers regular dental services and oral health education in remote communities;

 

  • Inter-hospital transfer of patients within SA & NT, and interstate, for specialist treatment or life-saving surgery;

 

  • Mental Health Outreach Program where clinicians make regular visits to remote communities in Central Australia to provide mental health care;
