The Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) takes the finest care to the furtherest corners of Australia. Our mission is to provide excellence in aeromedical and primary health care across Queensland.
In Queensland, the RFDS currently operates from nine bases at Brisbane, Bundaberg ,Cairns, Cloncurry, Charleville, Longreach, Mount Isa, Rockhampton, Roma and Townsville. These bases form a strategic network of aeromedical services as well as delivering a broad range of health care programs including general practice, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, child and family health, social and emotional wellbeing, mental health, womens health, oral health and healthy promotion activities.
The RFDS is a not-for-profit organisation. While supported by the Commonwealth, State and Territory Governments, the Flying Doctor relies heavily on fundraising and donations from the community to purchase and aeromedically fit-out our aircraft, purchase vital medical equipment and enhance our operational facilities.
