Does your practice need additional GP coverage this summer?

Many general practices across Victoria are being impacted by bushfires this season, and the demand for GPs in surrounding areas are expected to increase.

The Rural Workforce Agency Victoria (RWAV) GP Locum Program is a service for rural general practices and Aboriginal Medical Services requiring GP locum coverage. RWAV is dedicated to supporting the retention of doctors in rural practice and supporting community health needs by providing high quality locum relief.

The benefits of using the RWAV GP Locum Program for your practice are:

  • Continuity of care for your community
  • The provision of suitably qualified Fellowed GPs who are able to provide Visiting Medical Officer, on-call and Emergency Department services to local rural hospitals
  • A dedicated recruitment team who can source GP locum cover at short notice
  • Comprehensive support, including assistance with administration and negotiation processes relating to the placement
