What drew me to RARMS was the genuine commitment of the Board and staff to working with communities to find solutions to their own health needs.  I am absolutely committed to community-led health planning because local communities are the experts in their challenges and needs.  I learn so much every time I talk to someone on the street.  RARMS has given me the chance to help to create sustainable health solutions, by empowering local communities.

GM, RARMS Health

RARMS actually delivers services on the ground to rural, remote and Indigenous communities.  Having worked in primary care for over a decade, it is nice to wake up in the morning and know you are making a change on the ground.

GM, Medical Workforce & Telehealth Solutions

Innovation drives RARMS to create solutions for rural, remote and Indigenous communities that have national application in addressing workforce need.  RARMS is all about how we improve health outcomes by increasing the availability of local doctors and health professionals.

I have worked in rural general practice for many years and RARMS has given me the opportunity to use data and local insight to help us to align health services to community need.

Working with committed local people and doctors in some of our most remote and disadvantaged communities is not without its challenges, but it is so rewarding to help build local capacity so that communities have the skills to manage their own future health.

Working with RARMS is like juggling one hundred balls while riding a unicycle.  This is the most challenging environment I have worked in.  But it is also rewarding to know that every day I am helping to save lives.

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.
