We’re seeking a General Practitioner to join a Mixed Billing practice in St George, QLD.
Seeking an experienced General Practitioner as a GP has left, the clinic is looking for someone either Full Time or Part Time to join them. You’ll work alongside 1 other full time permanent General Practitioner, and are joined also by a rotating roster from the local hospital. You’ll be supported in the practice by a CDM nurse, 2 full time RNs – one of whom is also an aboriginal health coordinator, as well as a full time Mental Health Coordinator, and a part time EN. The nurses will provide support in Immunisations, Health Assessments, Chronic Disease Management Plans, Spiro, Wound Dressings, ECG, Procedures Assisting, Ear Syringing and they have a friendly administration team there to help.
The practice has been in the community for nearly 100 years, with the current owner having owned it for 5 years. The owner is very serious about providing a high quality of medicine in his community, and the staff are all locals who have been a part of the community for a long time. This means the incoming Doctor should be someone interested in building a life as a part of this beautiful community, and being a part of making positive changes in the practice and reaching out to the community.
You’ll see a patient demographic that includes not only general medicine but significant mental Health, preventative health, and chronic disease. The practice is open Monday to Friday, 8.30am – 5pm and is seeking someone to work these hours and participate in the on call roster. The on call is primarily for the local aged care residents and because the community is so closed knit, many will just present to the local hospital. There is a bonus payment for the nights you are on call.
Current General Practitioners are seeing approximately 30 – 40 patients per day on average, with an average income of $17,000 – $20,000 per fortnight.
