RARMS IS PROUD TO BE A MEMBER OF THE FOLLOWING ORGANISATIONS

NSW Rural Doctors Network.png

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.
