Lifestyle in Northern Tasmania

With Launceston, Tasmania's second largest city located in this region, the Northern Region offers a lifestyle with world-class activities including premium cool-climate wines, some of the best mountain biking in the world, museums, art galleries, year-round events, heritage trails and much more. You are only minutes away from the Launceston Airport and close to beautiful coastline and rich farmland estates.

HR+ provide an invaluable service to Practice Managers in Tasmania. Jenny has acted as a mentoring support for me since I commenced at Don Medical Clinic in September 2018, and also supported me through networking events and education during my previous practice manager role in Hobart. Having a mentor like Jenny from HR+ has made a huge difference to me as I find my feet in the challenging world of practice management. I have found the support that HR+ provide, not only with mentoring but also the events put on by the Practice Support team, and the email support networking resources that are regularly provided, are invaluable and I am sure for many other practice managers in the state.
