We are in contact with a number of agencies that provide services and financial assistance to rural medical practitioners. We help agencies to recruit locums so that hard-working rural and remote practitioners can take annual leave and attend continuing medical education activities.
Rural Health Workforce Australia is the peak body for Rural Workforce Agencies (RWAs), who operate in each state and the Northern Territory. In addition, the following organisations can assist you with information about locum initiatives and on current locum vacancies:
Queensland - Health Workforce Queensland
New South Wales - New South Wales Rural Doctors Network
Victoria - Rural Workforce Agency Victoria
South Australia - Rural Doctors Workforce Agency
Tasmania - Health Recruitment Plus Tasmania
Western Australia - Rural Health West
Northern Territory - Northern Territory PHN
The College also has a network of Women Rural Medical Practitioners who are willing to work as locums for rural women practitioners. For more information on this network contact us.
