We’re working with a group practice who have 3 clinics in the city of Ballarat, all are in central locations and have had established patient bases since 2009.
Due to a number of retiring GPs there are now several vacancies available at these busy and well managed clinics. They are keen to attract UK trained GPs who have a patient –focused approach to healthcare. Their clinics provide a wide range of services, they aren’t looking for any specific special interests but will support any that you do have. Doctors see 4-5 patients an hour.
All the clinics are modern, purpose built and fully equipped with treatment rooms and are supported by a practice manager, administration staff along with plenty of experienced nurses who assist with chronic health care plans, immunisations, minor procedures and PAP smears etc. There is also on-site pharmacy, physiotherapy & pathology along with other AHP support.
Clinic opening hours are Monday to Friday 8.30am – 6pm and one of the practices is open Saturday 8am-12pm.
You will be included in the out of hours consortium with a group of local doctors which is mostly telephone triage and rarely a consultation. On-call is approximately 1 in 30.
Full time GPs are earning over $350k
• Minimum 12 month contract
• Competitive % of billings
• Financial relocation assistance
• Reimbursement of flight costs
• Accommodation provided on arrival
This is a great opportunity to join an established practice with a lovely working environment and to become part of a fantastic community.
Ballarat is a thriving regional city, it's 60 mins to the suburbs of Melbourne and around 80 minutes from Melbourne airport .

There are numerous festivals and sporting events throughout the year along with a wide variety of restaurants and nightlife.
It’s a great place to raise a young family with a real sense of community!
