The Flying Doctor Podcast

We are really excited about our new national podcast called 'The Flying Doctor'!

Hosted by Lana Mitchell of the Royal Flying Doctor Service, and produced by the new Australian ‘audio-on-demand’ platform, LISTNR, we are positive you will enjoy this series.

You can listen to the podcast below as each of the new episodes come out weekly -- or you can listen for free on the LiSTNR app, Spotify app or through iTunes. 

The rural and remote communities that the RFDS services are made of strong and often courageous individuals. They don’t enjoy the close proximity of health services that people in metro areas enjoy, and they work shoulder-to-shoulder with the RFDS to act as first responders, clear and light dirt runways, oversee RFDS medical chests and much, much more.T

The purpose of ‘The Flying Doctor’ podcast is to give insight into the challenges that exist for those that live, work and travel in the bush.   

In this series we talk to real patients, to their families and also to RFDS staff who have had to tackle scary and unexpected situations.

It is about mateship, about life in the bush, and about the role that the Royal Flying Doctor Service plays in servicing rural communities.

We would love your feedback on the podcast through our social media channels or to lana.mitchell@rfds.org.au.
