Rural LAP is a component of the Australian Government’s rural workforce capacity agenda and aims to provide targeted rural support services to general practitioners, specialists (obstetricians and anaesthetists), nurses, midwives and allied health professionals in rural and remote Australia. Rural LAP enables rural and remote professionals to take leave by finding suitable locums to back-fill positions, ensuring ongoing service delivery.
