The Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) has been honoured as Australia’s ‘Most Trusted Charity’ in the Australian Reader's Digest Trusted Brands survey of 2024. 

This accolade underscores the vital role the RFDS plays in the nation’s healthcare system, particularly for those in rural and remote areas, and the deep trust Australians place in its services.

"A patient’s trust in their medical services is vital – particularly if they are living in locations that don’t have the same access to the services enjoyed in our cities," said Frank Quinlan, RFDS Federation Executive Director. 

“This Most Trusted Charity award is a testament to these strong partnerships and relationships,” Quinlan continued. 

"This also includes the wonderful ongoing efforts of first responders, local volunteers that clear and light dirt airstrips, long-serving custodians of medical chests, rural hosts for clinics, fundraisers and donors, and much more. We thank them all for their tireless work to keep Aussies safe."

In addition to this latest honour, the RFDS holds the title of Australia's Most Reputable Charity from the RepTrak survey of 2024. 

The dual recognition from these surveys, both of which reflect public opinion, underscores the immense respect and admiration Australians have for the RFDS.

The RFDS remains dedicated to its mission, continuing to innovate and expand its services to meet the evolving healthcare needs of rural and remote Australia, ensuring that no matter where they are, Australians can access the medical care they need.
