The LMC’s we have assisted into rural LMC practice tell us they couldn’t have done it without our support.
We have funding available to assist and support the establishment of LMC practice in rural and remote rural locations in New Zealand.
The establishment grant is designed to attract and encourage two or more midwives to establish an LMC midwifery practice in a rural locality in which no current LMC practices exist. This may or may not involve the midwives physically moving to the locality. The purpose of this grant is to encourage midwives to develop sustainable and viable LMC rural midwifery practices.
We have relocation funding available to assist LMC’s who are considering moving to a rural or remote rural locality in New Zealand.
The placement grant is designed to attract and encourage LMC midwives to move for at least three years to rural localities that have been experiencing LMC midwifery shortages. The purpose of this grant is to recruit and relocate experienced LMC midwives into the specific rural localities to establish and maintain a viable service. On completion of their three year placement the midwife will have the option of staying or moving to another three year placement.
