Take over an existing patient base from a retiring GP at a busy and growing mixed billing clinic

  • DPA position
  • Existing patient load to take over
  • Mixed billing from 2022 onwards

The Practice

With growing demand within the local community and one of their GPs retiring, this practice needs a doctor to take over the patient load and hit the ground running. The practice is home to one other GP that brings over 30 years of experience as a country doctor and has an interest in women’s health, mental health, teaching registrars and chronic disease management. You will be working alongside a highly experienced doctor that has been operating in the local community for years. Although currently bulk billing, the practice will be transitioning to mixed billing from January 2020. The practice is currently in a growth phase and is looking to create a team of doctors. The practice is looking to expand and open up two other clinics, with a focus on ensuring they meet current patient demand and provide the local community with access to much needed healthcare.

This historic building features four consult rooms, one treatment room as well as a staff room and kitchen area for you to relax on your breaks. Situated in a central location, you will be working within walking distance to a range of amenities as well as a pharmacy and hospital located close by. There is staff parking, ensuring an easy commute to work each day.

Not only will you work alongside an experienced GP, but you will also have the support of a dedicated full-time nurse as well as three friendly receptionists. Work-life balance is on the cards with family friendly hours of 9am to 5pm from Monday to Friday. There is no on-call or weekend work, allowing you to truly unwind and relax on your days off.
