The South Island Division of Family Practice is designing a new service that will help members with their practice coverage needs. Based on recommendations from the Recruitment, Retention, Retirement and Succession Planning Working Group, a Locum and Practice Coverage Consultant, has been hired to help develop a one stop matching service for our GP members and for locums looking to practice within the South Island Division region. Building on the Cowichan Locum Coordinator Program, which has been in operation for a few years now, we will be piloting a similar program to inform the best model to be included within the A GP for Me Implementation Plan. 
Key components of this program will include:

  • one point of contact for physicians to find a locum and for locums to find work
  • support with the administration of the work of matching, locum posting and advertising
  • development of resources and tools to support both the GP and the locum.


If you want to learn more about the Locum Coordination Program and how you might be involved in a pilot program either as a locum or a physician member looking to pilot the services offered, please contact us by e-mail
