Rural Locum Assistance Program (Rural LAP)
Rural LAP provides locums so that rural health professionals can attend continuing professional development or take vacation leave. The program also funds GPs to do extra training so they can become rural locums.
The Rural LAP consolidated 3 previous programs:
- Nursing and Allied Health Rural Locum Scheme (NAHRLS)
- Rural Obstetric and Anaesthetic Locum Scheme (ROALS)
- Rural Locum Education Assistance Program (Rural LEAP).
