A NSW Rural Doctors Network initiative

The contributions of rural communities are a foundation of our country’s economy and society. Through good times and bad, they don’t let us down. It's critical that our doctors, GPs, nurses and allied health practitioners take care of themselves so that they can keep our rural communities healthy.

#RuralHealthTogether is an initiative of NSW Rural Doctors Network (RDN) to provide rural health professionals with self-care support and access to wellbeing related information, both for themselves and for their patients.

2022 Flood Recovery

Our thoughts are with our members, rural health professionals and communities directly impacted by the storms and floods in February and March 2022.


RDN and partner organisations are currently coordinating a response to provide General Practice and primary health care workforce support to areas of NSW.


During these tough times, please try to remember your own self-care.
