Description of charity's activities and outcomes:
RFDS Tasmania's vision is to improve the health outcomes for all Tasmanians with a specific focus on rural and remote areas.During the past 12 months, RFDS Tasmania has expanded its service delivery with the provision of new primary health programs and the establishment of a non-emergency patient transport service.Primary Health Tasmania commissioned RFDS Tasmania and a consortium of local government councils to deliver improved health putcomes for people living in the municipalities of Dorset, Break O Day, Glamorgan Spring Bay, George Town and Flinders Island.The primary health care program is designed to address chronic health conditions in rural and remote areas, including mental illness, cardio vascular disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and dementia. The services are delivered to both individuals and the community by Rural Health Workers, Physical Health Workers and Mental Health Workers. The program is supported by Primary Health Tasmania under the Primary Health Network's program an Australian Government initiative.In April 2017, the Hon Dr David Gillespie MP announced national funding to provide eligible residents living in rural and remote communities across Australia with increased dental services to tackle the disparity that exists between the city and the bush.The Commonwealth-funded dental outreach program has since been established in Tasmania and sits under the banner of Mobile Dental Care. The program is designed to focus on those rural and remote communities that are currently unable to access existing services. It is being provided within a flexible service structure and delivered in communities of disadvantage across the state.RFDS Tasmania has also established a new non-emergency road patient transport services for low acuity patients across Tasmania. The service is an integral part of the health care system and designed to moved patients from home to hospital, between hospitals, to specialist medical appointments and in addition for domestic and aged care facility transfers.Mobile Patient Care will be integrated with RFDS aeromedical services to provide a seamless transition from bed to bed across Australia with minimal disruption whilst maintaining the continuity of patient care.
