Supporting rural health in New South Wales

The NSW Rural Doctors Network (RDN) provides support for a continuing and high quality rural medical workforce in NSW. RDN:

Attracts, recruits and retains general practitioners, nurses and allied health professionals in rural and remote communities. Delivers a wide range of specialist outreach health services in rural NSW towns. Develops and administers a number of programs to improve the recruitment and retention of medical and health professionals in rural and remote NSW. Provides a central information resource for rural medical support initiatives in NSW.

RDN is a not for profit, non government organisation with more than 800 doctor members. It is funded by both the NSW state government and Australian federal government. RDN works with the NSW Rural Doctors Association (RDA) - an industrial and medical political body - and the 14 NSW rural and border Medicare Locals in NSW, to support general practice.

Established as a public company limited by guarantee in January 1998, RDN took over many of the pre existing roles of the Rural Doctors Resource Network (RDRN) and the NSW Rural Divisions Coordinating Unit (RDCU).
