For 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, the New Zealand Flying Doctor Service provides critical-care patient transfer services between specialist metropolitan hospital facilities and outlying areas, accompanied by skilled medical practitioners in the aircraft alongside patients.

From critical care burns victims, spinal injury patients, neonatal transfers, or accident trauma victims to routine elective surgery transfers, organ delivery, blood or equipment supply, the New Zealand Flying Doctor Service offers a fast, efficient and effective transfer facility with specialised care and attention every step of the way.

Since inception, the New Zealand Flying Doctor Service has completed well over 2000 missions.

We are currently working on a new website for this service. Keep an eye out for its launch!
