The RFDS in VIC

What we do in Victoria

In Victoria, the Royal Flying Doctor Service works in partnership with a number of community health organisations across the state to improve the health and wellbeing of our rural communities. We believe in creating opportunities so all Victorians have the choice to access essential health care services.

Each year we come into contact with more than 90,000 patients across Victoria through primary health care services and transports by air or road. 

We also provide non-emergency patient transport services on behalf of Ambulance Victoria, with this service also supported by our aircraft capability at Essendon Fields Airport.
