I had an amazing opportunity to photograph the Dalby event of the Darling Downs Healthy Roadshow and the ‘Heart of Australia‘ truck recently. What an amazing service! If you aren’t aware of the amazing services offered here is a little about them:
Heart of Australia delivers fortnightly specialist medical investigation and treatment clinics to regional, rural and remote area communities across Queensland, including Dalby, Goondiwindi, Stanthorpe, St George, Charleville, Roma, Emerald, Barcaldine, Longreach, Hughenden, Charters Towers and Moranbah.
It’s a program that embodies the most innovative approach to front-line specialist medical service delivery in generations, specifically aiming to help Australians whose lives are threatened by this nation’s vast distances.
Our customized road train – a specialist medical clinic-on-wheels – has traveled more than 150,000km on the road covering an area of more than 450,000 square kilometres.
Heart of Australia is breaking the grip of distance that denies rural and remote-area Australians access to services when and where they are needed most.
