Royal Flying Doctor Service
Ms WELLS (Lilley) (13:50): My electorate of Lilley is iconic, hosting many iconic things, among them the Royal Flying Doctor Service airport hub for Queensland. The Royal Flying Doctor Service has been providing vital emergency and primary healthcare funding since 1928. They care for one Australian every two minutes. In the pandemic they have been doing invaluable work rolling out the vaccine. So far they've delivered vaccines to 25 clinics and administered vaccines to more than 2,000 Queenslanders. The Royal Flying Doctor Service are held dearly in the hearts of many Australians, so much so that Jericho Road Clothing—an iconic Brisbane label built by Chloe and Kate—have just launched their Outback Skies collection, which this work shirt is part of. One hundred per cent of profits will be donated directly to the Royal Flying Doctor Service. Legends!
Jericho Road Clothing's initiative is a great and very sartorially satisfying way for ordinary Australians to contribute to the work of the Royal Flying Doctor Service. But this service is also in need of more federal infrastructure funding from this place to continue to service regional Queensland with better hub infrastructure. So I implore the Morrison government to reach into the Building Better Regions Fund, do the right thing and support the Royal Flying Doctor Service to continue to support Australians in need.
