Locum Incentives

RDN offers subsidies to doctors who are registered as locums with RDN and complete eligible advertised roles.

View GP locum vacancies.

Travel Subsidies

RDN’s Travel subsidy may be available to eligible practices to offset costs and promote direct placements; thereby avoiding extensive agency fees. Locums must be registered with RDN and complete eligible advertised placements where the Locum will be covering leave for a permanent GP of the practice. The subsidy will be paid to the practice to cover the cost of the Locum's travel. The subsidy can be paid to the Locum if they cover their own costs for travel in consultation with the practice. Practices that source a Locum via a recruitment agency or are using a Locum for workforce shortages will not be eligible for the subsidy. Travel Subsidies may be available up to the following amounts.

Eligible subsidies will be paid at the end of the Locum's placements and cannot be backdated. Please contact RDN If the Locum leaves before the placement is complete.

Please contact RDN’s recruitment team locums@nswrdn.com.au to check eligibility for the placement.
