Ochre Health manages the GP practices in a number of Australian country towns, and provides full time and locum doctos to the bush.

The company's owner and chairman of the board, Dr Ross Lamplugh, says it's experimenting with new styles of recruitment.

"We've got this great database now of people which includes practice managers and doctors that work for us," he said.

"Why not go out to our internal database, and we'd prefer to give them the money than anyone else, and say 'look, do you guys know the person that we're really looking for in Bourke?'." via
