Private Billing

The Practice

Due to a long-term doctor retiring, this private billing clinic is looking for a GP to take over the patient list and be part of a team that provides high quality healthcare. The practice is well set up featuring 18 consulting rooms and two procedure rooms. The exiting team of 15 other doctors are fully booked, with 12 of the doctors having their books closed.

The practice provides their GPs with personal assistants, full-time nurse support, a practice manager and reception and admin staff.

The practice is happy to provide visa sponsorship and in addition to the usual billings also offers a rewards programme for their doctors.

Practice opening hours are 8:30am to 5:30pm Monday to Friday and 8:30am to 12:30pm Saturday mornings which are shared on a non-onerous roster of one in eight, so each doctor covers one Saturday morning every two months or so. For GPs who would like to boost their billings with a little after-hours work, the practice can offer the option to work on Wednesday evening 6pm to 8:30pm.

Wavelength has had the pleasure of helping a GP from the UK join this clinic 9 years ago, who is still there and providing lovely feedback.

Situated in a friendly village shopping strip in a higher socio-economic area, this purpose-built practice has all the facilities you’ll need including a staff kitchen and bathroom, pharmacy and pathology on site, as well as a lovely café downstairs so you can enjoy your cappuccino or latte during your breaks.

The Location

Located two hours’ drive from Sydney, this town west of Newcastle has easy access to shops, schools and public transport.
