GP - Latrobe Family Medical Practice
Latrobe Family Medical Practice
Location: North West Tasmania
Occupation: General Practitioner
Title Description: GP
Position Type: Full Time
Latrobe Family Medical Practice is situated in the historic township of Latrobe, approximately 8 kilometres from Devonport in the North West of Tasmania. The practice services a large rural area and the surrounding towns.
Latrobe Family Medical Practice is a privately owned and operated group practice. Due to the current demands of the Practice, we are seeking to recruit one full-time GP. Ideally, the new GP will be vocationally recognised with no restrictions.
As the practice values education, the willingness to train and mentor registrars and medical students would be an advantage.
Our practice was named the Australian Medical Practice of the Year by the RACGP in 2011.
We have eight well equipped consulting rooms, a theatre room and 3 nurse rooms, one of which is utilised as a fully functional emergency room. Eleven GPs are currently working at the practice and they are supported by a dedicated team of nurses and administration staff. We are also lucky to have Physio Tas, Diabetes Tasmania, Launceston Lung Centre, Launceston Heart Centre, NW Pathology and Hearing Tasmania working along us at various times. Coventry’s Pharmacy is co-located within the building.
Consultation hours are from 8.00 am – 6:00 pm, Monday to Friday and we hold a Saturday clinic from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm. We also utilise the afterhours triage service of GP Assist to minimise out-of-hours calls and we share an on-call roster with two other practices in the area.
We are an AGPAL accredited practice and offer a mixture of bulk billing and private billing, depending on the patient’s circumstances.
What's on offer?
Health Recruitment PLUS (HR+), in conjunction with the practice, will organise a comprehensive orientation program on arrival.
