The Role

The group have been in operation for 14 years and currently have a few clinics in the Melbourne area.  They operate as a not for profit company, putting quality community healthcare as their priority.

They see a fairly large number of indigenous and refugees patient bases within these clinics alongside standard general practice patients.  Therefore doctors with 2nd languages or who have an interest in these demographics would be highly sought after.  Their clinics do have translators as well.

They aim to improve community health and there will be opportunities to develop services and take ownership of services within the group, any special interests you have can be supported.

Both practices have support from nurses, case managers, AHPs and admin support.

The clinics are open Monday to Friday 8.30am to 6pm and Saturday  8.30am – 12pm.
