Access to local allied health practitioners onsite includes a physiotherapist, diabetes educator, dietitian, podiatrist, psychologist and a child & family health nurse. CFP is fully computerised, using Best Practice clinical software, and provides a mixed billing model.

The CFP team are excited about their vision for their future innovative services and are keen for the new GP to live in the area and embrace the lifestyle of living and working in a country practice. Applicants are invited to visit the practice's website for further information.

Lifestyle in Southern Tasmania

With Hobart, Tasmania capital city located in this region, the Southern Region offers a lifestyle with world-class activities including museums, art galleries, year-round events, heritage trails and much more. You are only minutes away from Tasmania's largest airport and close to wineries, gourmet dining experiences, beautiful coastline and wilderness 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.
