The Flying Doctor Podcast takes off

We are excited to announce today the Royal Flying Doctor Service and the new Australian ‘audio-on-demand’ platform, LISTNR, launch a new national podcast series called the ‘The Flying Doctor’.

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.

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.

You can listen to the free series on our website or by using the LiSTNR, Spotify of iTunes apps.
