CMPSK transparent
Location: North West Tasmania       Occupation: General Practitioner       Title Description: GP       Position Type: Full Time      
DPA: Yes       MMM: 3       Moratorium Period: 7 Years      

Two full-time GP positions available. This practice also offers the opportunity to follow your interest and work in their dedicated skin clinic.

The Position

City Medical Practice is seeking to recruit two full-time General Practitioners. An interest in skin medicine and aesthetics is desirable - although not essential - as the practice also operates a collocated skin clinic.

The full range of GP services is on offer, along with a travel clinic, dietitian and simple procedures.

You will be required to participate in the Saturday and after-hours roster as well as visit patients in the local aged care facilities. The consulting hours are Monday to Thursday from 8.00 am to 6.00 pm, Fridays from 8.00 am - 5.00 pm and Saturdays (by appointment only) from 11.00 am - 4.00 pm. The practice utilises the after-hours triage service of healthdirect to minimise out-of-hours calls.

City Medical Practice is a mixed billing practice.

The Organisation

The City of Burnie has a population of approximately 20,000 and is situated on sunny Emu Bay, on the north-west coast of Tasmania, 40 minutes from Devonport and a little over 90 minutes from Launceston. Apart from the beach and wonderful produce from the surrounding farmlands, Burnie is the gateway to the famous Cradle Mountain and West Coast Wilderness. It offers public and private hospitals and schools, and is home to the Cradle Coast campus of the University of Tasmania, plus the Tasmanian Polytechnic and Tasmanian Academy.

Established in 1990 and located in the Burnie CBD, City Medical Practice is privately owned and operated. The practice is committed to being on the forefront of medical technology whilst maintaining the caring aspect of medical practice.

Continuous education is very important at City Medical Practice, which takes pride in being a teaching practice. The practice hosts medical and nursing students, and all clinicians and staff continuously train and upskill.

There are thirteen consulting rooms, a treatment room, a procedure room and a sterilising room. Nine GPs currently work in the practice, assisted by six full-time equivalent nurses. A number of allied health professionals provide a visiting service to the practice, including regular diabetic and care plan clinics, and there is on-site pathology and radiology. The practice is fully computerised using Best Practice.

What's on offer?

  • Competitive remuneration package based on percentage of earnings (with guaranteed minimum earnings of $120,000 per annum based on working full-time).
  • Generous relocation grant, as well as four weeks’ paid accommodation and use of a vehicle upon arrival.
  • Eligible location for HR+ Health Workforce Scholarship Program.
  • Eligible location for Workforce Incentive Program.

Lifestyle in the North West

The North West region of Tasmania is famous worldwide for having some of the most beautiful natural places you can find in Australia. Live in safe and supportive communities close to beautiful coastlines, food trails and breathtaking national parks.

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.
