Our history

The RDNS Group

130 years of caring

RDNS New Zealand is part of the RDNS Group of companies. Our parent company RDNS Limited, is based in Australia and is recognised as the largest and oldest provider of home nursing and support services in Australia.

The Royal District Nursing Service (RDNS) was established in Melbourne in 1885 when a single nurse began offering care to the sick poor in their homes. Today, the RDNS Group is proud to be one of the most trusted service providers in the industry and one of the most innovative leaders in mobile nursing and home care technology in Australia.  For more information visit www.rdns.com.au.
