The Royal Flying Doctor Service is a unique and vital medical service in Australia. It provides 24 hour emergency healthcare over the entire country, covering an area of more than seven and a half million square kilometres. Not only do they provide emergency care to people living, working and travelling in rural and remote areas, but they provide clinics, preventative health programs, access to specialists and much more.
May this year marks 90 years that the Royal Flying Doctor Service has been operating in Australia. This is a group that I donate to every year because of the uniqueness of what they do and how necessary it is in our vast country.
