You will be supported by a team of 3 nurses and 5 admin staff. The 8 Dr’s have a variety of specialisms including a Paediatrician, Gastroenterologist and a Vascular Surgeon.

The location

Tasmania's north is a feast of historic streetscapes and heritage estates, rich farmland, premier cool-climate wines and fresh produce. 

The largest city in the region - and second largest in the state - is Launceston, a vibrant hub for food and wine, culture and nature.

The city is on the banks of the Tamar river and is the gateway to the Tamar valley, a region where English conservatism sits happily alongside the unconventional and off beat.
