Abstract: RDAQ Foundation operated a Health Check Clinic in collaboration with University of Queensland Rural Clinical School (UQRCS), Rockhampton and James Cook University (JCU) Rural Generalist Program. It provided patrons at BEEF 2018 a free non-invasive health check to assess their individual health status. Each health check provided an assessment designed in line with RACGP guidelines.In addition to providing this valuable service, the purpose of the Health Checks Clinics was to gain insight into the health of rural and remote Australians and their concerns regarding their health and access to health care. The findings will inform the service model for future health clinics provided by RDAQ Foundation.The purpose of the Public Health Survey was to collect information on the major health issues facing rural and remote Australians. It explored access to health care and what the health care priorities are for those living in rural and remote communities. Together, the data from the Health Check Clinics and the Public Health Survey will provide a better understanding of health services needed in rural and remote Queensland.
