New DPA locations for GPs going to Australia

As a GP considering making the move to Australia one of the main considerations is where you can work. All GPs are required to work in a DPA location and the good news is, there have been many new DPA locations added to the map recently.

Areas are opening up to GPs from the UK and Ireland and over the past few weeks, many locations have been reviewed and been approved to employ overseas trained GPs. This opens up the much desirable cities such as Sydney, Brisbane and Perth.

We have a wide range of GP jobs available, offering an amazing work-life balance and the opportunity to earn a great income. Many of our jobs are in coastal locations and within 30 – 45 minutes of the cities.

New DPA Locations

  • Perth – Coastal locations both north and south of the river have opened up – all within a 45 minute drive from the city
  • Melbourne – The ever popular Mornington Peninsula and Geelong remain plus jobs only 30 minutes west of the city
  • Brisbane – A huge range of jobs north of Brisbane towards the Sunshine Coast and in the western suburbs
  • Sydney – The Central coast region (commutable from the northern city suburbs) and to the West of Sydney

Please get in touch to have a chat about your preferred locations! These remain in place until July 2022 when all areas will be reviewed. If there is a location you’re keen on, it’s best to express your interest sooner rather than later.
