  • Regular short flights to Sydney (50 mins, 3 times a day) or a 2.5 hour drive.
  • Salary package of AUD$250 – 300,000+ (plus the work/life balance to enjoy it.)
  • Excellent choice of some of the best schools in Australia - public, private and university.
  • Large, varied and affordable housing - buy a few acres of land and graze cattle or grow some olives, vines or fruit trees….
  • Home to one of Australia's premier motor racing circuits.

The opportunity

You will be part of a cohesive Anaesthetics team, providing excellent clinical care to patients as well as contributing to the development of Anaesthetic Services and mentoring of junior medical officers and registrars.

This is an opportunity to demonstrate your strong clinical acumen, influence and support an enthusiastic team of health professionals, review service requirements and introduce new models of care.

The Hospital

Bathurst Hospital serves a population of over 41,000 people and the specialist clinics operate five days a week with specialist services in renal, gynaecology, gerontology, rehabilitation and general surgery fully utilised.

It is currently undergoing accreditation as a training facility for emergency medicine, while the obstetricians and gynaecologists have been working with the general manager to upgrade the maternity unit to level 4 and the special care nursery to Level 3. They now meet Ministry of Health standards for this upgrade which means premature babies can be treated locally rather than undergo the long trip to Sydney.  Additionally, with the appointment of an intensive care specialist the intensive care unit is being upgraded to be a fully accredited level 4 service.

The Location

Set in a wonderful natural environment with warm summers, clear, crisp winters, occasional snowfalls and lovely spring and autumn colours, Bathurst is one of the region's most beautiful cities, offering a diversity of attractions, activities and facilities.

It also has short regular flights to Sydney (50 mins, 3 times a day) or take a leisurely 2.5 hour drive.

Affordability is one of Bathurst’s key strengths. The average house price for a 3 bedroom home is $350,000 compared with Sydney median house value $900,000.

As a demographically young city with the median age being 36, Bathurst is supported by a strong educational sector.  There are over 55 institutions from the headquarters of Charles Sturt University, to 6 high schools and pre-school and family Day Care Schemes.

Historic sites and architecture, cultural facilities, the famous Mount Panorama motor racing circuit and the growing wine industry all contribute to making the city an appealing destination.
