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.
