Two locations, one purpose

Tropical Townsville beckons! This longstanding clinic that has been caring for the local community for 30 years and undergone renovations in 2020. The practice operates from two sites in neighbouring suburbs 20 minutes from central Townsville, with two hospitals only ten minutes away.

You will be working alongside three other doctors as well as a team of reception staff, nurses and a highly experienced practice manager.

Your special interests will be supported and the established GPs focus on chronic disease management, aged care, dermatology, skin excisions and women’s health. You will be part of a dedicated team that continue to improve the education and experience in indigenous health as well as general family medicine. There are various allied health services available so you will be able to provide optimal healthcare for your patients.

Both clinics are open five and six days per week, 8am to 5/6pm respectively and the Saturday morning hours 8am to 1pm are covered by a shared, non-onerous 1:4-6 roster.

On-call work is not required but can be arranged if desired. The team prides itself on providing all their team members with work satisfaction and a healthy work life balance.

Enjoy the convenience of a healthy work-life balance

If a relaxed lifestyle and family time are your priorities now, this role is for you! With excellent facilities, such as first-rate schools, a university, two hospitals and pharmacy nearby, both clinic sites are only 20 minutes’ drive from Townsville city centre.

As the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and its surrounding white sandy beaches, dipping palm trees and migrating turtles and dolphins, Townsville boasts a vast variety of attractions, such as several World Heritage listed national parks that are close this spectacular location. With an average of 300 days of sunshine per year, it’s no wonder that the Townsville lifestyle is all about the great outdoors!
