For the sixth consecutive year, the Royal Flying Doctor Service has been recognised as the most reputable charity in Australia in the national annual Charity Reputation Index.

In addition, for the first time since the establishment of this survey, RFDS achieved first ranking across all survey dimensions of services, innovation, workplace, citizenship, governance, leadership and cost management.

The RFDS is committed to making a difference for all people living, travelling and working within Western Australia through the provision of the very best aero medical care available anywhere in the world.
