Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia (Queensland Section) Limited (RFDS) is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to providing vital health care to anyone travelling, working or living in Queensland. The iconic RFDS’s emergency retrieval service operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week and has expanded to provide regular transfers of patients for life-saving surgery such as organ transplants and heart surgery, delivering critical support to those who live in rural and remote areas. A broad range of essential health care services to rural and remote communities are also delivered by the RFDS. This comprehensive health care service includes general practice, Indigenous health, child and family health, social and emotional wellbeing, women’s health and health promotion. Today, the RFDS provides the finest care to more than 70,000 Queenslanders each year – that’s one patient every seven minutes. In Queensland, the RFDS operates from eight bases including Brisbane, Bundaberg, Rockhampton, Townsville, Cairns, Mount Isa, Charleville and Longreach. These bases form a strategic network and help deliver the finest health care to all Queenslanders situated in coastal, regional, rural and remote areas.

The RFDS is committed to encouraging breastfeeding by new mothers who continue to work. As such, new mothers will be allowed reasonable time to both express milk and breastfeed infants. Time taken for breastfeeding breaks (other than those taken in prescribed meal and rest breaks) can be made up either before or after the employees designated starting and finishing times. Breastfeeding/expressing breaks are negotiated by an employee with their Manager.
