Help the Royal Flying Doctor Service go even further
24 August 2011
The Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) is a wonderful Western Australian icon and Bankwest is happy to join them to launch a special donation drive we’re calling the Remote Doctor Appeal.
Together with your help, our aim is to raise $100,000 to help the RFDS establish a new web-based service that will enable their doctors to provide remote online video consultations with patients living in rural or regional parts of WA.
To date, remote patients seeking medical assistance have only been able to call and speak to an RFDS doctor over the telephone. Once the new service is up and running they will be able to consult face to face, making it easier for their doctors to diagnose, assess and also establish whether or not an RFDS transfer to hospital is required.
Bankwest will match dollar for dollar contributions made by the public up to the value of $50,000.
We ask you to give generously to this appeal at any one of our WA Bankwest stores, where you’ll find special collection tins, or by transferring online via:
Account #: 284174-5
Thank you for your support.
