Welcome to the Rural Emergency Locum Service – “ELS”

LocumCo is proud to announce that we have again been successful and won the Tender to manage the Emergency Locum Service on behalf of Pharmacy Programs Administrator.

The Emergency Locum Service is available to assist you

The Emergency Locum Service (ELS) is an initiative of the Rural Pharmacy Workforce Program (RPWP) and aims to support pharmacies in rural and remote areas through direct access to pharmacist locums in urgent emergency situations.

The service provides 24 hour a day, seven day a week telephone access and up to $2,500 + GST to fund the travel costs of the locum.

The service aims to place a locum in any location in Australia within 24 hours for a maximum of 7 days.
