Royal Flying Doctor Service helps WA regions

A SPECIALLY equipped caravan will help the Royal Flying Doctor Service provide enhanced primary health care services to people living in remote areas of WA.

The ground based facility will help RFDS provide health services such as blood pressure screening, diabetes testing, health education and health promotion.

These will now be available to people without access to some of the services routinely available from urban health facilities.

Toyota Australia has donated a LandCruiser 78 Series diesel RV TroopCarrier as a tow vehicle for the caravan.

The six seater RV TroopCarrier is fitted with a 4.2 litre naturally aspirated diesel engine with five-speed overdrive manual transmission and two-speed transfer.

It is fully equipped with long range fuel tanks, bullbar and winch, differential locks, a cargo barrier and snorkel.

The vehicle was handed over the the RFDS in Derby as part of the Great Australian Trek, a 26 day LandCruiser convoy covering 10,000 kilometres of the most challenging terrain from Sydney to Darwin.

RFDS CEO Peter Howe said the LandCruiser would also give the RFDS an added presence at local shows, rodeos and country races.
