I can’t move rural because my partner won’t have a job!

We get a lot of doctors contacting us who are restricted by 19AB and/or 19AA and are scared to live and work in a rural location. 

“It’s too far away from the city, there are no schools for my kids, it’s in the middle of nowhere, there’s no public transport, I don’t know if I will be accepted…”- these are only some of the reasons our doctors don’t want to move rural.

But it isn’t as scary as you might think.
