Are you a GP looking for an adventure? Live and work in one of the quintessential outback Australian towns and reduce your moratorium to 3 years!

We have a position available for an experienced full time GP with emergency skills. The position is ideally suited to an experienced, doctor with current emergency skills looking to move into a wonderful rural community and become an integral part of the health service delivery team of the town.

Benefits of the position

  • Full time GP/VMO role, with the on-call GP/VMO roster requiring approximately 1:4 participation
  • Combine modern General Practice, supported by an onsite and visiting allied health team, with a manageable on-call VMO role.
  • Attractive remuneration package valued upwards of $400k per year, including rent free housing, plus GP Rural Incentives Program payments of up to $60k per year.
  • Potential to reduce the Moratorium for OTDs to 3 years.
  • Remote Vocational Training Scheme (RVTS) eligible location for doctors requiring supervision
  • Accredited general practice

Qualifications and Experience required

You must have, or be eligible for, either General or Specialist registration, a recent ALS (or equivalent emergency medicine) qualification and suitable experience and skills in emergency medicine. 

This is a DWS location and is recognised as a "Category A - 3 year town" on the 5yr Overseas Trained Doctor Recruitment Scheme, so GPs subject to the 10yr moratorium will be able to obtain a s19AB exemption in order to obtain a Medicare Provider Number for this location and be able to reduce their moratorium to 3 years subject to eligibility guidelines.

The practice is an eligible location for the Remote Vocational Training Scheme for generally registered doctors seeking a recognised training pathway to Fellowship.

The Location

Outback New South Wales, one of the most popular travel regions of Australia with the majestic Darling River flowing through its centre and to the northwest is the iconic Corner Country.

Anyone who travels though Outback New South Wales will understand the deep historical and cultural connections between the two areas; with experiences of Indigenous heritage and culture, pastoral history, ethereal National Parks, iconic outback towns and legendary waterways. It is just one of those places.

How Head Medical can help…

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.
