Located in the centre of beautiful Launceston, in the heart of the Tamar Valley in Northern Tasmania, Windmill Hill Medical is the ideal base to establish your career as a GP - where achieving the ideal work life balance is no longer a dream but a reality. Windmill Hill Medical is located in one of Launceston's most desirable suburbs within easy walking distance of the Launceston Aquatic Centre and Gym, parks, private schools and cafes. Launceston is renowned as the place to explore and experience all the better things in life including world class mountain biking, bushwalking, wineries, restaurants, beaches and alpine mountains all in close proximity.

The Position

Windmill Hill Medical are looking for an experienced GP to join their team. Fellowship with either RACGP or ACCRM is essential and ideally, applicants would have at least 5 years experience following fellowship.

The Practice is able to provide clinical and reception support to GP's wishing to work either part time or full time. Accommodating limited consulting hours eg school hours is not an issue. The practice is open from 8.30am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday, with no weekend work or on-call requirements, making Windmill Hill Medical an ideal location to work for those GP's wishing to achieve better family/life/work balance.

The Organisation

Windmill Hill Medical is a new medical practice established in April 2019 and is GP owned. A small friendly team of 5 GP's (3 FTE) and a Nurse Practitioner who are well supported by both reception and nursing teams. They aim to provide the best clinical and reception support to their GP's, with the practice being large enough to provide a supportive culture but small enough to be adaptive to the individual GP to ensure they have the best possible working environment. When the practice was established, no expense was spared on the fit out of the building or consulting rooms and the best medical equipment was purchased to ensure the highest level of patient care and GP satisfaction.

Windmill Hill Medical is a private billing medical practice, where the fee structure does not penalise longer consultations, allowing GP's the ability to spend the necessary time with each of their patients. This model has proven so popular in attracting new patients, that their appointment books are now squeezed, so that routine appointments are having to be booked 3 to 4 weeks in advance.

What's on offer?

Windmill Hill Medical prides itself on providing their GP's with outstanding clinical and support services to enable them to build the style and type of medical practice they have always wanted. The highlights of joining the Windmill Hill Medical team are;

  • Excellent earning capacity, with an innovative adjusting service fee percentage that maximises GP earnings, allowing you to keep more of what you bill.
  • A supportive culture of excellence that provides clinical and administrative support to the GP to build the medical practice they want whilst achieving the work/lifestyle balance they have always desired.
  • Outstanding physical work environment with the latest high quality medical equipment
  • Rapidly growing medical practice with strong patient retention and high new patient registration
  • Located in a world recognised lifestyle location city.

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.
