Flying Doctor Community Transport
Royal Flying Doctor Service Victorian Section
The Flying Doctor Community Transport program, run through the Royal Flying Doctor Service, supports rural Victorians that have difficulty accessing basic health services, often due to a lack of suitable means of transport and financial barriers. The program enables eligible clients access to free transport from home to health appointments and social support groups that are funded through Home and Community Care (HACC) and facilitated through registered health services. It is one of the ways the Royal Flying Doctor Service works with regional health care partners to not only improve the physical and mental health of rural Victorians, but enhance social connections as well.
