The RFDS in QLD

What we do

The Royal Flying Doctor Service in Queensland provides excellence in, and access to primary health care and aeromedical services across the State. Our emergency retrieval service operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, delivering the finest care to more than 330, 0000 Australians each year — that’s one person every two minutes. In addition to aeromedical retrievals of the critically ill or injured, the RFDS also delivers a broad range of essential primary and preventative healthcare services, including telehealth, mental health, oral health and health promotion.
