GP Locum Support Service

Everyone needs a break from work at some point and GPs are no different. For a doctor who may be the only practitioner in a community, finding a way to leave the community for a break can be difficult.

The NT PHN Locum Programme is an invaluable support service for GPs and health services in rural and remote areas across the Northern Territory.

We offer a no-cost GP locum placement service. Doctors or their employers may also be eligible for a subsidy to reduce the cost of engaging a GP locum to cover leave.
