The difference you'll make

Access to prompt, reliable healthcare is something that many of us take for granted. But for those living in rural and remote areas, it’s not always possible. In an emergency, waiting time is critical: it’s the difference between life and death. 

“If it wasn’t for the Royal Flying Doctor Service and their generous donors I wouldn’t be here today”. – Andrew, rural South Australia. 

Thanks to supporters like you, the Royal Flying Doctor Service can travel further, respond quicker, and deliver essential primary health care to every Australian — no matter where they live.
