Rewarding and varied workload
Combination of GP and Obstetric skills
Two hours from Melbourne

The Role
Working with a team of four experienced GP Obstetricians (two of whom perform Caesarean sections) who are delivering approximately 150-180 babies per year in this thriving rural region.  The practice has an active patient base of 9,000 regional residents and all of their doctors are fully booked with some of the longer term doctors having waiting lists of up to 3 weeks.

The practice is a private billing clinic which offers bulk billing to the under 16’s, the elderly and concession card holders.

The practice has 18 doctor consulting rooms, 4 emergency nurse cubicles and a theatre room for minor procedures. GPs at the practice support the 35 bed local hospital which is where the obstetric services are offered.

They are a popular training practice.

What’s on offer…

  • 60% billings for GP work
  • A guarantee of AUS$3,000 per week or 60% of billings whichever is greater
  • On average, GPs (in practice only) earn $300,000 - $400,000 per year.
  • Hospital/Obstetrics payments are offered in addition to the above
  • Temporary 457 visa sponsorship is current
  • Relocation allowance of up to $5,000
  • Comprehensive orientation to the Australian fee for service / healthcare system

The practice would encourage any doctor interested in joining them to visit them and experience what the local area has to offer. On commencement, they can offer a reimbursement of flights (doctor only) on commencement in practice.

About You

To be considered for this position you must have MRCGP and UK Specialist training or FRACGP or equivalent.

The successful applicant will have recent emergency medicine and obstetrics experience. 


The Location

The clinic is located in a former gold-mining town, situated within a rich pastoral, wine and fruit growing district only 200 kilometres from Melbourne. In fact the new freeway means that Melbourne is just two hours away!

The town has a population of around 10,000 and offers great schools, shops and a fabulous location! The town has a thriving arts scene and The Grampians are a drive away for those who enjoy camping and bush walking.
