A leading Australian medical recruitment agency is doing its bit for the people affected by the Queensland floods by matching every dollar that its doctors donate to the Relief Appeal.

Sydney-based Last Minute Locums (LML), part of the HCL group of companies, provides both locum and permanent doctors to hospitals across Australia. In recent days increasing numbers of the 3,000 doctors on its database have donated money to the Queensland Government’s Flood Relief Appeal. Now, LML has pledged to match the total amount its doctors donate to the fund, which has been set up to aid citizens who have been affected, and to help with the re-building effort.

Nancy Tsai, Managing Director of LML, says:

“Along with the rest of the world we have watched with deep concern and sympathy as floods have devastated large parts of Queensland. Now, we want to do something to help. More and more of our doctors have been contacting us to tell us about the donations they have made to the flood relief appeal, while others have volunteered to help care for those affected.

“In recognition of their community spirit, LML has pledged to match the total amount donated by our doctors to the Relief Appeal, dollar for dollar. We feel privileged to be able to do our bit to help people and families affected by the flooding ““ and we are united in admiration at their bravery in the face of these floods.”
