Royal Flying Doctor Service is a vital service worth supporting

I wanted to write something about Broken Hill today. Thought I would check Twitter again for some inspiration, rather than other sources which I've used in the past. www.ilovebrokenhill.com 's Twitter handle is @ilovebrokenhill .

The following tweet by @missemilymaree (Emily Biddiscombe) did the trick.

If you, your family, or just someone special to you have ever had a medical crisis in a regional area, the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) might just save your life. The organisation is a medical service that looks after the remote regional Australian population.

Well it's Sunday, I'm off for a bike ride, so this is just a quick post to remind readers to think of the Royal Flying Doctor Service and consider making a donation.

The RFDS's website is www.flyingdoctor.org.au . 

www.ilovebrokenhill.com supports the RFDS.

RFDS is a Broken Hill Attraction
RFDS's main base is in fact in Broken Hill. It's a great attraction to visit if you're heading to #BrokenHill for a trip.

I have written about the RFDS a few times, here's a link to my post of 4 February 2013, which talks about the RFDS base as an operating tourist attraction.

In May 2013 the service celebrated its 85th anniversary of operation, see my post of 26 May 2013.

Thanks Emily Biddiscombe for reminding us of this vital regional medical service.

Cheers, Jane Deany
