The RFDS in WA

Flight Nursing

The RFDS in Western Australia employs over 50 flight nurses in part time and full time roles, who provide medical care to the furthest corners of WA, retrieving sick and injured patients who require further medical assistance.

Our Flight Nurses are located at our facilities in Broome, Port Hedland, Meekatharra, Kalgoorlie and Jandakot. Our nurses have one of the best 'office windows' in the state with a myriad of landscapes on offer every day.

Flight Nurses are involved in all our aero medical retrievals whether they are inter hospital transfers or primary evacuations from remote locations such as mine sites, remote indigenous communities or pastoral stations and even interstate or Indian Ocean transfers.

Our Flight Nurses are committed to the very best patient care. In the video below Flight Nurse Libby Stearne talks about the patient journey.
