About the Job

Our client is looking for a GP who is passionate about Indigenous Health to join their practice, 30 minutes from Central Cairns.

The Role

  • Up to 65% of billings
  • Mixed billings
  • Generous Relocation packages available
  • Open Monday – Friday
  • Flexible contracts
  • DPA and PEP approved location

You can choose 65% of billings with a nominal joining bonus or 60% of billings with a generous relocation allowance, dependent on length of contract. A 2-year contract would offer $30k relocation allowance, increasing for every year up to 5 years maximum.

The Practice

The practice is currently made up of 9 GPs and is open Monday – Friday 8:30am – 5pm. Alongside the dynamic team of GPs, you will also be working with an experienced team of nurses and support staff.

This Medical Centre provides a wide range of healthcare services including Indigenous Health in which they run 3 remote clinics per fortnight to service the surrounding Indigenous communities.

They work closely with Mulungu Abroginal Service, Health Reimagined and Northern Australia Primary Health Limited and have several visiting allied health professionals such as diabetic educators, dietician, podiatrist, psychiatrist, exercise physiologist and Australian hearing.

The Location

Located 30 minutes from the centre of Cairns, Kuranda Village is a picturesque mountain retreat and the place to be for any paradise-seeker pursing an alternative and unique lifestyle. It is known as the Village in the Rainforest, surrounded by the world’s oldest living tropical rainforest.

Although Kuranda is a small town, it is not small when it comes to shopping with its two popular, open aired markets packed with stalls, cafes, local produce, and endless colour! Nestled within the rainforest itself, these markets also offer a wide range of wildlife attractions including Koala Gardens.   

For those who prefer City living, Cairns, a laidback city best enjoyed outdoors, is a commutable 30-minute drive from Kuranda.

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.
