Port Sorell Medical Centre is a privately owned and operated practice situated on the North West Coast of Tasmania in a seaside town only 20 minutes from the city of Devonport and 10 minutes from Latrobe.

The Position

Due to the current demands of the Practice they are seeking to recruit two GP's who can help support the medical students and GP registrars (8 sessions per week). Although not preferred, part time will be considered. You would also be required to participate in the On Call Roster which is typically one week in six, and includes the Saturday Clinic.

We are a training practice so we will consider a non-VR GP or IMG who is undergoing a national recognised GP training programme. Visa sponsorship assistance and support available.

Four GPs currently work in the practice, 2 Full Time, 2 Part Time, supported by four nurses. A number of allied health professionals provide a visiting service to the practice. Doctors working at the practice provide support to the local nursing home which is a walk away.

The consulting hours are 8.30am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday and the Practice does operate a Saturday session between 8.30am and 12.30pm. The Practice is registered with GP Assist and shares after hours requirements with practices in nearby Devonport and Latrobe, which minimises out-of-hours calls for GPs. The Practice offers a mixture of bulk and private billing. Port Sorell Medical Centre is fully computerised using the latest version of Best Practice software.

Skills and Experience required:

  • Registered, or eligible for registration, with the Medical Board of Australia
  • GP Registrar (GP1 to GP3)
  • Previous GP experience

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.
