Huon Doctors Surgery
Location: Southern Tasmania
Occupation: General Practitioner
Title Description: GP
Position Type: Full Time
Moratorium Period: 7 years
Family-oriented practice in Huonville, the gateway to the stunning Huon Valley, seeking a full-time or part-time VR GP. With so much to see and do in this beautiful part of the world, you’ll wonder why it took you so long to come on down!
Huon Doctors Surgery is a privately-owned, medium-sized general practice located in the rural township of Huonville in southern Tasmania, about 30 minutes south of Hobart in the beautiful Huon Valley. It provides a comprehensive range of family medical services. The doctors visit Huon Eldercare, the local aged care facility, on a rotational basis, with some of them also having admitting rights to the six rural health beds there.
The practice seeks an additional full-time or part-tme GP, who is preferably vocationally registered. An interest in helping support medical students and GP registrars would be an advantage.
With a population of nearly 4,000, Huonville is the largest town in the Huon Valley. The area retains the beauty, charm and heritage of a bygone area and is a popular tourist destination. It is also renowned for viticulture, agriculture (think apples, cherries and raspberries), timber production and salmon production, being the home of Tassal and Huon Aquaculture. The “Taste of the Huon” festival is held on the first weekend of March and showcases the fresh produce and wines on offer in the valley. Music and arts buffs won’t miss out, with various signature annual events.
Accredited by AGPAL and an accredited teaching practice for Term 3 registrars, Huon Doctors Surgery currently employs five full-time GPs, three nurses, a practice manager and four reception staff. Other services available are a chronic disease nurse and visiting urologist and psychologist.
The practice is fully computerised and uses Medical Director and Pracsoft for patient records, billings and appointments.
Consulting hours are Monday to Friday 8.30 am – 6 pm. The practice does not open after hours or on weekends or public holidays, and the medical deputising service GP Assist is used to cover after hours patient needs.
What's on offer?
The practice is offering a competitive remuneration package based on percentage of earnings and welcomes discussions with potential candidates.
Date advertised: Wednesday 17th April 2019
In conjunction with the practice, HR+ will organise an orientation program on arrival tailored to the doctor’s needs.
