RaRMS Supporting Local Health and Social Initiatives

On 27 August 2019, RaRMS met with Lightning Ridge Central School to present a donation in support of their Breakfast Club.

Lightning Ridge Breakfast Club

The Breakfast Club not only provides breakfast for approximately 70 students a day but it is also a cultural hub for the school where staff and students come together for an early morning catch up over breakfast.

The success of the club relies heavily on the hard work of Volunteers who work tirelessly for benefit of the school community.

RaRMS Health Lightning Ridge Practice Manager Helen Evans nominated the Lightning Ridge Central School as being worthy of financial support and nominated the Breakfast Club for one of a number of Community Grants that RARMS distributes each year.

On Tuesday 27th August, Helen, Ashlee Brennan, Executive Manager of Clinical Services for RARMS and Bianca Wilson, the Clinical Development Manager attended the school and presented the Breakfast Club with a cheque for $2000. This was greatly received and will be used to maintain this excellent community service.

RaRMS is pleased to continue to support and have a positive impact on several of the recognised social determinants of health, i.e. education, social inclusion, early life experience (which also correlates with the emphasis across the WNSWLHD on the “First 2000 Days of Life”).

Rural and Remote Medical Services Ltd was formed by the NSW Rural Doctors Network (RDN) to address the chronic shortage of doctors in rural and remote NSW.  Using the 'Easy Entry, Gracious Exit' model developed by RDN, RARMS has grown to support ten of NSW's most disadvantaged and vulnerable communities to attract and retain GPs over the last 20 years.  Now an independent charity, RARMS acknowledges the work and dedication of RDN and its officers and staff in helping to establish Australia's most successful rural and remote medical workforce solution.

Our Clinics are independently accredited by external medical experts so our communities can be confident in our care.


RARMS is a registered not-for-profit charity and every dollar we receive goes to improving the health and sustainability of rural and remote communities.

RARMS delivers more than 20,000 medical consultations every year, keeping our communities healthy and safe.

We pay our respects to all First Nation elders past, present and future from the lands where RARMS works.  RARMS  acknowledges the Awabakal people in Newcastle, the Wiradjuri, Ngemba and Kamilaroi people in Western NSW, the Hunter and New England, the Ngunnawal and Yuin people in Braidwood, and the Barkindji and Wilyakali people in far west NSW who are the traditional custodians of the land on which RARMS works.
