RFDS – Impact Statement October 2020

A message from Meredith Staib, Chief Executive Officer

Despite the challenging circumstances in recent months, we have continued to provide vital emergency medical and healthcare services for regional, rural and remote Queenslanders, including our mental health services which have become even more vital during this challenging time.

Over the past few months we have had to transform our mental health service delivery model to align with COVID safe standards. Our on the ground, face-to-face services quickly had to adapt to an online delivery model during the early stages of the pandemic and we had to notify our clients and patients of these changes as quickly as possible.

This wouldn’t have been possible without your support – the funds you raised helped us to advertise our service delivery changes and allowed us to create downloadable mental health online resources, including videos, podcasts and PDF tip sheets, for Queenslanders during this challenging period.
