Specialist Travel Services
Specialist Travel Services are therapy services offered to those living in rural and remote communities, through a fly-in-and-fly-out or drive-in-and-drive-out model . This means that even though we don’t have an office in the region where you are located, where possible, our team of specialists are still able to deliver services to the area, either through driving or flying in and out.
