New experience and new territories for RFDS

n addition to the work the Royal Flying Doctor Service has been doing to provide vaccinations for our normal territory in regional and remote NSW, the pandemic has seen us head to a host of new locations to provide assistance.

It started with additional clinics across the Far West at the request of the Federal Government but has expanded since then to include the New England, Upper Hunter and even South Coast regions. 

While our regular clinics are based out of Broken Hill, these additional clinics have been organised from our Dubbo base.
