Why get involved?

The Royal Flying Doctor Service delivers extensive primary health care and 24-hour emergency service to those who live, work and travel throughout Australia. As a not-for-profit organisation, we rely on your generosity to ensure our doctors can reach those who urgently need help.

27m kilometres flown in the last year
775 patient contacts every day
67 aircraft in active service

A service that helps someone every 2 minutes of every day is bound to be resource-intensive, but without it the human cost would be far greater. We need people like you to step up and make the difference between life and death for so many Australians whose access to healthcare is limited.

“If The Flying Doctor wasn’t there and I couldn’t get the specialist medical treatment I needed, my children wouldn’t have a mum.”
