Heart of Australia
QML Pathology has been proud to support Heart of Australia since May 2016
Heart of Australia is 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. Heart of Australia’s customised road train – a specialist medical clinic-on-wheels – has travelled more than 150,000 km since starting on the road, covering an area of more than 450,000 square kilometres – breaking the grip of distance that denies rural and remote Australians access to health services when and where they are needed most.
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, Winton, and Moranbah.

In addition to our support, we are excited to announce the Federal Coalition Government will be providing a grant of $1 million which it hopes will boost confidence for plans to add more services. You can read more about how this will aid the Heart of Australia program here.
A recent communication from the Team of Heart of Australia and a link to the recent Australian Story is below
We thank all of you for your continued support since our first clinic in October 2014 to the present time, where our team have seen over 3,000 patients in country Queensland. With your help we will continue to deliver on our vision to reduce the barriers of access to specialist health services in rural communities.
We hope that you enjoy the program!
