This friendly privately owned practice in a small coastal town is expanding. If you’re into ocean and river fishing, you’ll want to hook this one!
Somerset Medical Centre is a privately owned general practice looking for two additional full-time GPs to increase service capacity. You will preferably be vocationally registered, however supervision is available if required for doctors with general registration on a GP training pathway.
The practice is open Monday to Friday from 8 am to 6 pm, with clinics on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays for four hours staffed on a roster basis. Whilst the new doctors will be required to participate in the after-hours on-call roster, the practice utilises the triage service GP Assist to minimise out-of-hours calls. You may also provide support to the two local aged care facilities and do home visits as required.
Skills and experience required:
- Current AHPRA general or specialist registration
- Previous GP experience preferred but not essential
