Workforce Incentive Program (WIP/GPRIP)
Please be aware there is a financial incentive available to registrars who are training in MMM3-7 locations. This payment is automatically banked into the medical practitioners’ (including GP registrars) bank account through their billings to Medicare. Please provide/update your bank account details using the Workforce Incentive Program – Doctor stream – bank account details form.
There are circumstances where the rural incentive payment does not automatically occur. Please go to NSW Rural Doctors Network (RDN) for more details.
For more information about this incentive, please email Kristy from the RDN via email@example.com.
