Medical Deputising Service
The Australian Locum Medical Service (ALMS) was founded in 1969 with the objectives of providing a better quality of life to General Practitioners (GPs), by assisting them in the provision of after hours care to their patients. It has developed over many years to provide not only world class service to patients but also the opportunity for both local and overseas doctors to experience this challenging and rewarding workplace.
ALMS has been providing medical deputising services for GPs in Melbourne and Perth for over 45 years and is the first Medical Deputising Service (MDS) established in these cities, currently providing after-hours primary care for the patients of nearly 2,000 GPs. ALMS also provides its Medical Deputising Services in Brisbane and Sydney, utilising the extensive expertise and experience it has gained to provide doctors and their patients with comprehensive and coordinated after hours care. Such long term experience in this challenging and ever changing industry enables the provision of unparalleled, professional, after-hours support.
The Australian Locum Medical Service is an Accredited Medical Deputising Service, to Standards set by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners. ALMS has further committed to the quality of care provided with its existing services meeting the National Association for Medical Deputising Services (NAMDS) Definition of a Medical Deputising Service.
