RWAV Specialist GP Locum Program (Contracted Locums)

The RWAV Specialist GP Locum Program provides GP locum relief for holiday, sickness and CPD leave to rural and regional locations in Victoria. This is a free, end-to-end service available to candidates and health service providers including General Practices, Community Health Centres and Aboriginal Medical Services.

About RWAV Contracted Locums

Our free GP locum service is available to General Practices, Community Health Centres and Aboriginal Medical Services. Our contracted doctors work on a fee-for-service basis at a subsidied cost and work according to standard practice hours or hours agreed. An average placement is two weeks – these doctors are paid by RWAV and the health centre is invoiced for the hours that they have worked by RWAV.

We currently have a number of doctors who are available for short term (2 to 4 weeks) locum support across the months of June 2021 and beyond. These contracted doctors can be assigned to your health service at a subsided cost through the RWAV Specialist GP Locum Program.
