Hallo liebe Community,
habe demnächst ein kleines Referat mit einem Kollegen. Den Text den ihr hier sieht ist mein Part. Wäre ganz froh wenn ihr mal eure Meinung dazu schreibt, was man besser machen könnte oder ob ihr damit was anfangen könnt.
We want to give you a short presentation about the Royal Flying Doctor Service and road trains in Australia´s outback. Our presentation has 2 parts. After that there will be time for you questions.
Firstly, I would like to tell about the Royal Flying Doctor Service
The Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia is one of the largest and most comprehensive aeromedical organisations in the world. It provides emergency and primary health care services for people living in remote areas of Australia. It is a non profit organization which provides health care to people who cannot access a hospital.
The Area Medical Service was found in 1928 by John Flynn. The first base was in Cloncurry, Queensland and in 1934, started the first plane from the base to his first emergency. In 1943, the name changed from Area Medical Service to Royal Flying Doctor Service.
The Royal Flying Doctor Service has actually 63 planes and 21 bases in Australia. Emergency calls will received by phone or two-way radio communication. The plane with his crew need maximum 2 hours to fly to a patient. The Royal Flying stationed also boxes with medicaments in some places in the outback, for people who are ill.
The cost of the RFDS are financed by federal grants from the government, the Norhtern Territory and from donations. The cost for the equipment and medical devices must pay the service itself.
The RFDS has an Area of 7 millions square kiolmetres, this is two-thirds of the total area of Australia. The base in Alice Springs is responsibility for 1 square kilometer in this almost 16. 000 people live. 90 percent of them are Aboriginie.
The base in Alice Springs is one of the famous station, because tourists can visit this station.
In summary is the Royal Flying Doctor Service a great organization to help people in the remote areas in the Outback of Australia
