Work for Perth's leading after hours provider
Night Doctor is Perth’s leading after hours provider offering amazing locum opportunities to GPs and doctors interested in a career in General Practice.
Flexible Work Packages to Suit You
Are you after extra work to top up your income? Whether you’re looking for casual or full-time work, we’ve got daytime, evening and overnight shifts available, giving you complete flexibility to fit your lifestyle.
General Practice experience
Are you considering a career in General Practice but don’t know what to expect? After hours locuming allows you to get a feel for General Practice within a clinically supported environment so that you can be certain it is the right career for you.
RACGP PEP training
We sponsor doctors on the RACGP Practice Experience Program (PEP). The program provides access to the highest A1 Medicare rebates and allows doctors to gain valuable GP experience and count their time at Night Doctor towards Fellowship.
Return to General Practice
Locuming at Night Doctor is a great way to ease back into General Practice after an extended period of leave. With flexible work arrangements and no concerns about maintaining a patient base, it’s the perfect stepping stone back to life as a GP.
Work in Area MM1
After hours work is considered an area of workforce shortage, meaning doctors can work at Night Doctor even if they would normally be restricted from working in an MM1 region (e.g. those under a 10-year moratorium).
Travel and work
Are you travelling Australia and want to earn along the way? Or maybe you’re considering a locum stint in Perth whilst exploring everything this stunning region has to offer. We’re a great locum opportunity whatever your travel plans are.
Want to know how much you'll earn?
Night Doctor is a private billing service which means our patients pay a gap, this significantly boosts your income.

Frequently Asked Questions
The Approved Medical Deputising Service (AMDS) Program run by the Department of Health has two core purposes:
- reduce the need for patients to attend the Emergency Department in the after hours period when regular GPs are not available
- offer non-Fellow GPs (GP Registrars or hospital doctors) the opportunity to gain general practice experience
The Department of Health provides non-Fellow GPs access to Medicare billing (under section 3GA of the Health Insurance Act 1973) whilst working at Night Doctor. This access coupled with private billing allows Night Doctor to offer top locum rates.
Medical deputising is considered an area of workforce shortage. As a result, doctors that would normally be restricted from working in metropolitan areas (e.g. those under a 10-year moratorium) are granted access under the AMDS Program.
