The RFDS in VIC
Rural Women's GP Service
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 rural Victoria.
The Rural Women's GP Service is highly valued and enables rural Victorian communities to have a gender choice when visiting 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 1000 patients per year.
This service is available to all community members who would like to see a female GP.
The RWGPS is currently available in the following locations:
