Where your money goes

We need a wide range of the latest medical equipment to continue providing the best aeromedical service in the world. Your donation purchases vital, but expensive, equipment including:

  • Foetal heart monitors
  • Ventilators
  • Defibrillators to re-start a failed heart

Your donation buys aircraft to keep us flying. Our aircraft are among the safest in the world and fly more than 7 million kilometres in their lifetime! But after 20 years of hard work, they need to be replaced. Our fleet include aircraft used in air ambulance services. Your donation funds essential health services:

  • Preventative Health Programs in remote communities
  • Better access to specialist health professionals for extremely remote locations
  • Improved access to health information and resources for patients and health professionals
  • The delivery of culturally appropriate health services

* All donations made to the Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia, are equally distributed between the RFDS operational Sections around Australia.
