Our Impact

Making a difference to a rural and remote community.

As rural doctors, we are dedicated to helping rural and remote communities access lifesaving healthcare when they need it most.

Rural and remote people can do it tough when it comes to health.

That’s why, it is a great honour to be able to do something meaningful to change that. After all, saving lives is what we signed up for. We’re helping to keep those in rural and remote communities healthy through lifesaving health checks. We’re conducting important research. And importantly, we’re funding those projects which can really make a difference to the health outcomes of our communities. The Grants for Good Health program is helping creative ideas for better health get off the ground. 

And we couldn’t be prouder.
