It is a fascinating story of a uniquely Australian venture. As the first of its kind in the world it had its beginning in Queensland in May 1928.

Developed on a national basis in the 1930's, the Service soon provided for the people of the Inland not only medical aid in emergencies, but also a comprehensive health care and community service.
