The role of locums in our health system

The Commonwealth Department of Health is inviting all doctors to participate in a survey on the use of medical Locums across the Australian health care system. 

The purpose of the survey is to understand the reasons why medical professionals may seek Locum work, and the reasons broader healthcare stakeholders may engage Locums.

The survey will take approximately 15 minutes of your time and the cut off date for responses will be Friday 8th September 2023.

You can take the survey here.

Your responses will provide valuable insights that will contribute to strengthening the evidence base supporting Locum-related workforce policies as part of the National Medical Workforce Strategy - click here to find out more information.
