RGPLP - General Practitioner needed for Victorian Community Health Centre of Kaslo

Role and Facility Information

Low volume, generous appointment times for General practice, with Long-term care and a small Emergency Room coverage, all situated in the Kaslo Primary Health Centre. Looking for locum for 8-11 days during this 2 week period including Saturday the 22nd if possible (currently we are not covering Sundays but that may change in October). Also have the option to subcontract some days if the locum prefers to come for longer and/or work a combination of RLP and subcontracted days. I'm planning on taking a sabbatical with my family to volunteer in Madagascar. I'd really appreciate locum coverage. Let me know and we can discuss further!
