Lifestyle calls! Opportunity to join a well-established practice in a relaxed seaside town yet with all the amenities close at hand.
Wynyard Medical Centre is seeking a full-time vocationally registered General Practitioner with no restrictions to join the team. The new GP will be required to work 9 sessions each week and participate in the after-hours roster and weekend on-call, as well as visit patients in the local aged care facilities and undertake home visits. Preparedness to assist in the supervision of IMGs is desirable.
With a population of 5,000, Wynyard is a relaxed seaside town situated on the picturesque north-west coast of Tasmania and famous for nearby Table Cape and fields of stunning tulips in spring. It is located at the mouth of the Inglis River and is a popular holiday spot for beachgoers and fishermen, and just an hour and a half away from Cradle Mountain and many other terrific walks for those who are keen on bushwalking. The nearest large town is Burnie, a 15 minute drive away.
Wynyard Medical Centre is a well-established family practice within a spacious and well- appointed building and takes pride in providing a welcoming teaching environment to medical students, nursing students and GP registrars. The practice has full accreditation for RACGP registrars and restricted accreditation for ACRRM registrars.
The medical team currently consists of seven full-time GPs supported by a pool of four practice nurses and six administration staff. The practice offers a full suite of services to patients across all age groups, including travel medicine and occupational medicine, and enjoys a large patient catchment across the north-west and west coasts.
A number of specialists provide a visiting service to the practice via video conference, including a neurosurgeon/spinal surgeon, neurologist and psychiatrist. Visiting allied health services comprise an audiometrist, dietitian, physiotherapist and respiratory scientist. Tertiary services are available at North West Regional Hospital in Burnie.
The practice is open from 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday and from 9am to 12pm Saturday to Sunday. To minimise after-hours call-outs, it utilises the after-hours triage service GP Assist. The practice is fully accredited with GPA, fully computerised using Medical Director and PracSoft and offers a mixture of bulk and private billing.
What's on offer?
The practice is offering a competitive remuneration package based on a percentage of earnings and welcomes discussions with potential candidates.
