LOCUM SERVICE Kaimahi Riwhi

Locum Service

Prior to establishing the service in 2009, many rural midwives had limited access to regular time off-call due to geographic isolation. Some communities simply have a limited number of midwives to provide back up for each other. Hence the locum service was born - designed to support time off for education and annual leave for rural midwives, the RMRRS has over 300 experienced locum midwives nationwide.  
 

All eligible midwives are entitled to 9 days locum cover for their own personal caseload per year. In addition to the 9 days annual leave, the RMRRS provides an emergency service allowing up to 5 days emergency locum cover for midwives.
