As Australia's leading life insurance specialist, we're proud to be a national major partner of the Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia (RFDS),  one of the largest and most comprehensive aeromedical organisations in the world.

What does the RFDS do? 

The RFDS provide extensive health care and emergency services to people over an area of 7.1 million square kilometers. Without their services, many Australians in remote and regional areas would be unable to continue living the lives they love in their communities.

Combining telehealth consultations, fly-in fly-out GP and Nurse clinics, mobile dental services, patient transfers, and a myriad of other health services, the RFDS is constantly working to see that those living in rural and remote areas can enjoy the same health outcomes as those living in city areas.

Working to make a real difference for all Australians 

Our partnership with the RFDS will enable us to help Australians access life-improving medical services and expertise, as well as educate people in rural and regional Australia about health.

By combining our knowledge and expertise with the RFDS,  we will work to make a real difference to each other and the Australian families we protect.

The partnership aligns with the three focus areas of our TAL Community Foundation: children from disadvantaged backgrounds; Indigenous communities; and mental health.

Both TAL and RFDS have proud histories of being there for Australians when they need us most and we share a focus on finding innovative ways to make a real difference.
