This is an independent general practice on the outskirts of Mackay. It’s GP owned, currently with 4 GPs who work full time. They have one of their long standing GPs who is moving interstate so the new GP will be taking over a very busy patient base.
The practice can accommodate 6 GPs in total, it has a well equipped treatment room and is fully computerised / paperless. The GPs are supported by receptionists, an experienced practice manager and full time nurses. There is AHP support within the complex from pathology, pharmacy, physiotherapy and dentist with the practice having a visiting mental health nurse 2 days per week.
The doctors have a range of special interests and see a lot of skin cancer patients, occupational health and chronic disease management. They aren’t looking for any special interests in particular but you must have good all round family medicine experience – their patient base has an average age of 35 and they see a lot of young families.
It’s also a teaching practice taking registrars and medical students. They are a supportive practice and will encourage a non VR GP to progress through the FRACGP / FACRRM exams.

Appointments are booked at 4 per hour although walk in / emergencies are also fitted in.
