GP Job South Australia- The Practice

This is a very interesting, rural GP position based in South Australia. The town lies in the central Eyre Peninsula of South Australia which is 500km west of Adelaide. The town is a friendly farming community with fairly young population of 1200. The town lies on the main highway connecting South and Western Australia.

This is a sole GP position where you will be the only doctor in town. You will be replacing a GP who has worked at the practice for many years and is now relocating. The practice hours are Monday to Friday 9am – 5.30pm with on call requirement at evenings and weekends. On-call has been very well managed by the previous GP and is initially nurse led so very few call outs required.

The practice is a very comfortable, large, solo practice with administration staff and Registered nurses. There is allied health and community nursing staff within the same building. The local hospital is just 100m from the practice. The patient base is mixed with a fairly young population.

The practice opening hours are Monday to Friday only and there is an on-call requirement for evenings and weekends. Primarily managed by the nursing staff, the previous doctor received around one phone call per fortnight. Non priority cases can be managed by video facility from Adelaide however more urgent cases need to be managed to coordinate hospital transfer to Adelaide either by ambulance or the Flying Doctor service.

As part of the role you will need to manage the hospital inpatients. There may be 2-3 inpatients at any one time, the previous doctor would see the patients in the afternoon during the week and then once at weekends as required.

The Position

This is a 2 year position where you can choose to either work as a contractor with 70% of billings or as an employee. For either employment type, a guaranteed income of $375k is offered. You will have a house and car paid for the duration of the contract with relocation assistance and up to $50K lump sum rural incentive payment.

The previous GP is still involved in the practice and will offer initial supervision and support. You will be an experienced GP with basic life support skills. Further training can be provided in Australia with plenty of opportunities to upskill where required.

You will have lots of support from the local community where ongoing GP support is valued. The local council have offered to fund the training of your Pilots licence in addition to the salary package.

The Location

The practice is located in a rural town on the highway between Adelaide and Western Australia. It is an agricultural town with service industries. It is 6 hours drive from Adelaide and 2 hours to Port Lincoln where there is a domestic airport.

The population is 1200 in the wider area. The coast is 45 minutes away and national parks are 40 minutes away. In the town there is a school from Kindergarten to High school. There is a swimming pool, sports centre and golf club and places to eat and drink.
