We are pleased to announce that NAHRLS will continue to reach the greatest area of need with 375 nursing and midwifery and 50 allied health locum support placements available from 1 July to 31 December 2015.
This financial year, NAHRLS locums have made it possible for over 800 health professionals to take a leave and contributed to the continued provision of healthcare services to rural and remote communities around Australia.
This financial year our locums have made it possible for over 700 nurses and midwives and 95 allied health professionals in rural and remote areas around Australia to take much needed CPD and personal leave. This is a great achievement and it could not have done without the support from all of you.
A call for 213 Australian Government funded locum support applications for next financial quarter has already seen over 130 locum requests come through and all available allied health placements have been allocated to eligible health service applicants this week.
Over 70% of Australian Government funded placements have already been awarded.
This means that the NAHRLS programme will be supporting over 130 nurses and midwives to take leave between 1 July and 30 September 2014. There are only 50 placements remaining for this period so if your staff require leave between 1 July and 30 September 2014, complete the NAHRLS online Client Job Order Form and submit your application for support today. But be quick, placements are filling up fast.
