They will be on hand before you even arrive to ensure that you are fully supported and welcomed to the practice with all of the practical and professional help that you will need to make your relocation go as smoothly as possible.
One of the GP owners will be in the UK in Feb 2022 and will be available to meet face to face.

- Bulk billing Mon-Fri, private billing Saturday
- $120ph minimum guarantee for 3 months

There are currently 3 GPs and a registrar, the practice is very busy and as they have just regained DPA status till July 2022 they are keen to bring some new GPs on board to meet patient demand.
You will join a team that includes two nurses (RN & EEN), 3 receptionists, an Assistant Practice Manager (based at The Entrance) and a Practice Manager (based at Toukley)
Onsite Allied Health Services are provided by More For Movement Allied Health (Dietitian, Physiotherapy, Podiatry, Diabetes Educator). Pathology services are located in the practice, along with a Pharmacy. Imaging services are located less than 1km away.
They are happy to support any special interests Doctors may have. They already cover a lot of areas (skin clinics, women's health, aged care, immunisations, chronic care, etc.) have state of the art treatment rooms and excellent nursing support.
Having been out to see the practice and meet the staff I can confirm it is an exceptional team dynamic - patients are part of their extended family (and not just a number). They describe themselves as quite a flexible, relaxed and happy place to work. Spouses and families are encouraged to join in on any social events they hold.
The practice was purpose built and opened in early 2018 with modern fixtures and fittings and has a 70 seat waiting room. It is air conditioned - each room has it's own air conditioning system, and the treatment rooms are state of the art
The majority of patients are aged between 15 and 65, they also service a number of aged care facilities in the area and there are a lot of young families moving into the area
New Doctors will have a formal induction/ orientation process and a mentor will be assigned to guide them through how Medicare works and the differences in pharmaceuticals. All of their GP's are from the UK, so they understand what areas and support an incoming GP will need help with
Opening hours are Monday to Friday 8am to 5.30pm and Sat and Sunday 10am to 2pm. Working hours are flexible but it’s preferred that you will work full time, which is 40 hours a week.
Drs are required to go on a weekend roster (Saturday only) - generally 1 weekend in 5 - but only 10am to 2pm. It would also be preferable if GPs took on some aged care residents in the area - these visits can be arranged during the day or after hours - but this is not mandatory.
To be considered for this position you must have MRCGP / MICGP / FRACGP or equivalent.
The Central Coast NSW Australia is one of Australia’s most popular coastal destinations, lying on the Pacific Ocean north of Sydney. Towns like Terrigal and Avoca Beach feature expansive beaches and surfing. The Entrance is a resort area offering a range of recreation at the confluence of the ocean and Tuggerah Lake, a saltwater wetland. The city of Gosford is the main commercial hub and visitor gateway
The surgery is located in a beachside suburb. Lots of the GP's live in the nearby Terrigal area - it's an upmarket suburb with lots of good restaurants and cafes. Central Coast Grammar school in Erina Heights (near Terrigal) is one of the best schools on the Coast - but not always the easiest to get into
What Head Medical can do for you
Arranging a position overseas is very exciting, but we understand that it can also be daunting and time consuming. We’re the UK’s specialist in international medical recruitment and we’ve helped many Doctors relocate since we first started out in 2008 (you can read what people have said about working with us on our testimonials page). We know it’s important to balance career opportunities with lifestyle and we’ll talk through your plans and will get to know you to make sure we find the right role in the right location.
Once we have secured a job for you, we’ll manage the Medical Registration and Visa application process, and support you (and your family) with the relocation itself.
