How We Help

It would be great to think that living in the country we have the same medical resources and treatments available to us, as those do living in metropolitan areas, unfortunately this just isn’t the case. Living in regional NSW the reality is that emergency treatment or specialist medical equipment is often hours away. Federal and State Government funding for medical services is stretched across our country, this means that not all areas are provided with state of the art technology and medical equipment. As a result, Doctors, nurses and medical practitioners, in some emergency situations are unable to fully care for the patient requiring them to be transferred to hospitals in larger cities. Not only are situations like these traumatic for the patient and their loved ones, there is a huge financial burden placed upon the family while they are away caring for their loved one. Not to mention the potential costs for after care, and in home treatment. The other side to what we do, is provide people of all ages with medical conditions with equipment and aids to improve their quality of life. ​ That’s where the Specialist Medical Resources Foundation steps in. We are dedicated to funding medical equipment to better the Riverina, and to equip those in extra-ordinary circumstances with the funding they require to help them improve their quality of life.
