Are you a Consultant Anaesthetist seeking a sea change in a milder climate in beautiful Western Australia?

  • Stunningly beautiful coastal location
  • Competitive remuneration up to AUD$450,000 (dependent on experience)
  • Coastal living with islands, waterways and beaches, as well as national parks.
  • Incredible whale watching
  • 18 schools in the area including state and private primary and secondary schools, colleges and university campuses
  • Anaesthetists can now access the Medium Term stream of the TSS (4 year visa)
  • One hour flight to Perth

The Role
Ensure the provision of comprehensive anaesthetic service and airway management to patients in Albany Health Campus and WA Country Health Service (WACHS) Great Southern. Participate in continued medical education and quality management and provides education support to colleagues and other staff. Support the Head of Anaesthetics in future anaesthetic service development.

Applicants should be registered (or eligible for registration) as a specialist with the Medical Board of Australia and be a Fellow of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (FANZCA) or equivalent as an overseas trained specialist who has completed their training in either the UK, Ireland, Canada, USA or New Zealand.

The Hospital
At AUD$170.4 million, Albany Health Campus’ opening in 2013 marked the completion of the largest public country hospital development ever undertaken in Western Australia.

It offers enhanced services in modern facilities with superior care for patients and a better working environment for staff.  Inpatient wards feature a mix of double and single rooms, all air conditioned. Negative pressure isolation rooms enable better infection prevention for contagious diseases.

A purpose-built surgical centre allows more elective and day surgery patients to be treated in one area of the hospital, minimising transfers and making life easier for patients. It includes three operating theatres, a procedure room and a dedicated endoscopy room.

The Area
Nestled between the beautiful Princess Royal Harbour and King George Sound, Albany is a port city of approximately 36,000 people and around an hour’s flight from Perth.

With breath-taking views from Mount Clarence and Mount Melville, annual whale migration and dolphin spotting there are many sensational experiences to share with the whole family. With amazing local wines and fresh produce, Albany offers many attractions all year round.

The town itself has some grand Victorian buildings with some great hotels, pubs and restaurants. The seafood, such as queen snapper and blue swimmer crabs, is as amazing as you'd expect. There are 5 award winning vineyards and the region is rich agriculturally with some of the best farmers markets in Australia. The beaches are one of the most beautiful things about Albany – and the sunsets.

First class parks, sporting and leisure facilities are dotted throughout the township. The location is ideal for families, singles or couples.
