This Irish GP moved to Western Australia in 2012 and “fell in love with the place”. He set up his own practice in May 2016, which now has 8 GPs and multiple support staff.

The surgery will focus on quality and patient-centred medical care. Situated in a busy shopping centre directly opposite a pharmacy, it will have a highly visible profile and high patient demand.

The surgery is based in a beautiful growing suburb 45 minutes south of Perth. The doctor has lived in the area since 2014 and has an excellent working knowledge of local health providers, hospitals, referral pathways etc. He can offer invaluable guidance to GP's who are relocating.

It is a great area to work, 2 minutes’ drive to beautiful beaches and a lovely patient base.

As it is non-corporate, GPs will be treated as a valued asset and not just another doctor, the GP owner will work with GPs to guide and develop any special interests they might have and will advertise their arrival and special interests in local media and internet to ensure that they quickly build up a strong patient base.

There will be plenty of scope to develop special interests as there is high demand in the area e.g. skin cancer, occupational health, chronic disease management, cosmetic medicine etc. Billing is a good mix of medicare, private and occupational.

The medical centre was fitted out in 2016 to the highest standard; 8 consulting rooms, physio/allied health room, 2 x procedure rooms, 3 bed treatment and triage room with nurses’ station. 

There is onsite pathology and physiotherapy with other local allied health and psychology.  Practice supported by a full time Practice Manager, several nurses, and admin staff.  Full IT support with Best Practice Software.

The practice is predominantly bulk-billing, with all procedures charged privately. Doctors are engaged on a contractor basis and remunerated 70% of billings with a guarantee of $150/hr for the first 3 months. 

With the advent of COVID-19, the practice has introduced a number of measures such as HEPA filters in all areas, fitted N95 masks and a standalone respiratory clinic to see symptomatic patients.

The practice is open Monday – Friday 8am – 6pm and Saturday morning 9am – 1pm. Saturday mornings are covered on a rota basis.
