Royal Flying Doctor Service Australia (Queensland Section)

The RFDS employs over 400 people in Queensland with positions ranging from pilots, doctors, nurses, engineers, allied health professionals, and a variety of administration and support services roles including finance, marketing and human resources. With its Queensland head office located at the Brisbane Airport, the RFDS operates 20 aircraft from nine operational bases located in Brisbane, Cairns, Townsville, Rockhampton, Bundaberg, Charleville, Mount Isa, Longreach and Roma.

All RFDS bases in Queensland (except Longreach) provide an aeromedical retrieval service for emergencies. This includes the provision of direct primary responses as well as transport of patients between hospitals – known as inter-hospital transfers.

All aircraft are staffed with a Pilot, Flight Nurse and a Medical Officer if required. The aircraft are fully pressurised and configured to resemble mini-intensive care units. They are fitted with either a Lifeport or TAS system and a stretcher loading system that is fully compatible with road ambulance systems.

Our mission at the RFDS (Queensland Section) is to provide the finest health care and aeromedical service across Queensland. Our vision is to improve health outcomes for people in rural, regional and remote Queensland.

Consider a career with the RFDS (Queensland Section) and make a real difference in people’s lives.
