Rural Locum Assistance Programme (Rural LAP)

Do you work in a rural or remote healthcare facility? Is it difficult to go on leave due to a shortage of team members? You may be eligible for Australian Government-funded support to help alleviate the pressure of finding a temporary replacement when you go on leave.

Our unique program is subsidised by the Australian Government, meaning that there are no hidden fees. Your healthcare facility only pays for their hourly wage, superannuation and any applicable taxes for the duration of your leave period.

Our program officers will recruit, screen and place highly experienced locums that can hit the ground running from the moment they arrive. We help alleviate the pressure even further by arranging and paying for the locum's travel and accommodation.

All you need to worry about is ensuring your community receives ongoing healthcare during your absence.

Are you interested in becoming a locum? For every rural and remote placement, you not only receive complimentary travel and accommodation, but you also receive an incentive allowance of $150 per working day and a $100 per day meals allowance.
