A Flying Doctor

Print

Some of the doctors in Australia have wings. They can fly and I mean really fly.

In planes…… 

You didn’t think I actually meant they could flap their own wings did you?

The Royal Flying Doctor Service in Australia was started by Reverend John  Flynn back in 1928. Initially, named the Australian Inland Mission Aerial Medical Service they were based in Clonclurry, QLD with one pilot and one doctor. He never would have thought all these years later Australia would be serviced nation-wide by a fleet of over 60 planes carrying doctors and nurses to remote, rural and regional Australia.

Last year 90,000 patients were consulted and more than 5000 remote clinics were operated by the RFDS.

  1. We are involved. As Secretary of the RFDS Support Group I am delighted to tell you that our little group (32) raised over $40,000 last year all donated to Central Operations. This year we are on track to raise a similar amount.
