What we do in Tasmania

rural scene

RFDS Tasmania delivers a range of primary health care services and community projects to benefit all Tasmanians, including an award-winning dental outreach program and mental and physical health programs that are all provided free of charge with Federal and State Government funding.

Our mobile and visiting dental care services are currently operating on King  and Flinders Islands and throughout the north, north-east and east coast of Tasmania. A new mobile dental vehicle has extended our reach to many more isolated communities.

Primary health services are delivered in 11 LGAs on the east and west coasts, north, north-east coast, Tasman, Bruny Island and Huon Valley.  These include mobile youth mental health services on the east and west coasts, Meander Valley, Central Highlands and Northern Midlands.
