The Royal Flying Doctor Service QueenslandPresenter: Russell Postle
Date: Wednesday 29th September 2021, 1:00pm-2:30pm
Venue: Online meeting
Russell is a consultant with the accounting firm BDO, having served as a partner there until 2017. His passion though, is the Royal Flying Doctor Service. He was elected Chairman of RFDS (Qld) in 2019, having served on the Board since 1987. Russell's talk will discuss John Flynn's concept of a "mantle of safety" for rural and remote Australia, the concept which underpins the work of the RFDS. He will look at how the organisation embraces changing health needs and technologies, and the fit between land-based services and the aviation model. The relationship between the RFDS and the broader community, whose donations allow the service to function, is crucial to its operations. The service derives financial and health services from all levels of government, and Russell will examine why a federated model works and the associated challenges. There will be a Q&A at the end of the session.
There is no fee for this event.
