Due to high patient demand this GP is opening another surgery in Lake Macquarie and requires 2 GPs to join their team.
This will be a 1 GP practice initially with the principal GP having the opportunity to build a full patient base before being joined by a 2nd GP.
You will be supported by the practice owner, practice nurse, admin staff and visiting allied health professionals.
The owner is a UK trained GP who had to familiarise himself with the Australian medical and billing system and will be able to give all the guidance and advice required to a new GP to ensure that they get up to speed and are feel comfortable very quickly.
