Rural Womens GP Services

Courtney is a user of the RFDS Rural Women's GP. She holds her baby Marley.

Women often prefer to consult with a female doctor for a range of health issues.

In small rural communities across Victoria, there is only one local GP who is often male. RFDS Victoria provides a Rural Women's GP Service in small communities in the North West, North East and South East of Victoria.

The Rural Women's GP Service is highly valued by local women in rural communities and enables Victorian communities to have a gender choice when vising a doctor.

This service is 100% bulk billed.

Each Rural Women's GP Service runs on a 6-8 week rotation across a number of centres throughout Victoria and sees on average more than 800 patients per year.

This service is also available for men who would like to see a female GP.
