RMOs ordinarily work week on, week off (1:1) rotations. Whilst some variations on this pattern are in operation, it is felt that 1:1 rotations offer the safest working conditions for the doctors within the hospitals, whilst providing the doctors with consolidated blocks of work to minimise their need to travel.

The hospitals that operate 1:1 rotations provide free on-duty accommodation and meals, and internet access is provided to doctors.
