"Great way to locum. The staff were very engaging and prepared for every little element of the locum placement. Attention to detail and professionalism was second to none"
I LOVED Bunbury, in Western Australia....The town is just the most beautiful little place right on the coast with such great weather, there were lots of great beaches and the team were really nice.

Our doctors frequently report that working as a locum has enhanced their lifestyle. In order to determine if this sentiment is universally shared among our locum doctors, we sent a survey to every doctor who locumed with us over the past year. We're committed to helping doctors build better careers and lead richer lives, and this survey was designed to serve as a tangible metric of our efforts. As part of our continual improvement process, we plan to carry out this survey on an annual basis, utilising the results as a benchmark for progressive enhancements.
We conducted a comprehensive survey involving all doctors who have locumed with Medrecruit in Australia and New Zealand over the past year. To maximise response rates and get a more holistic view of the sentiment, we pledged a $2 donation to Hand-N-Peer Support, a mental health charity dedicated to supporting doctors, for each response received. Following the initial survey dispatch, we issued a reminder to ensure maximum participation. We collated the responses from both countries three days after the reminder was sent out.
In Australia, we sent the email out to 5,000 locum doctors. We had an open rate of 54.5%, we had 261 respondents In New Zealand, we sent the email out to 521 locum doctors , we had a 55 respondents, and an open rate of 62.4%.
