The Organisation

Ochre Medical Centre Campbell Town is located on Campbell Town’s main street and is approximately 70 kilometres to the south of Launceston.

In its early days, Campbell Town was an important stop-over on the multi-day coach trip between Hobart and Launceston. To this day, it’s Tasmanian tradition to stop in Campbell Town on the several hour drive between the two cities – a tradition which has led to an above-average offering of fantastic eateries.

Gazetted in 1821, Campbell Town is one of Tasmania’s most historic towns, boasting a legacy of broad streets, well established European trees, and stately colonial architecture. In modern times, Campbell Town is a bustling hub at the centre of a thriving agricultural region. And its proximity to Launceston makes this a viable commute for urban dwellers looking to experience rural medicine.

What's on offer?

  • Reduction in moratorium/Eligible location for 5 Year OTD Scheme

  • Eligible for rural relocation and retention grants

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.
