The Royal Flying Doctor Service - Review
The Royal Flying Doctor Service, previously known as Aerial Medical Service is 24 hour medical service where almost 80% of Australia can be reached by air, within two hours. The doctors and staff are constantly on call to respond to any medical emergency conveyed to them. Their main job at hand is to provide primary and preventive care till the patient is taken to a more stationary facility.
The Alice Springs base is a rather popular tourist attraction, but can be toured by the conducted tours that run every 30 minutes. The tour will allow you a look at the theatre for a visual treat, the operational air base, a full scale replica of the current aircraft in use, a flight simulator, medical gear used in the past and the control room.

The Royal Flying Doctor Service, Alice Springs Reviews
Well worth a visit. Fascinating talk and museum to look around. Great to understand how this vital service operates.
Fantastic tour all round! Would highly recommend it. Thanks
There is an entrance fee which we were happy to pay given this is a massive service and relies on donations. The hologram history was great as was having the original letters from John Flynn on display.
Very interesting displays and memorabilia. Staff need to take a lesson in friendliness. Seemed they didn't want to be there and we were being nuisances visiting.
Great place to visit, it tells you the history of the RFDS and what it does today very enjoyable
