A fixed term opportunity has become available to provide maternity cover for a 6 month period from June to December 2021.
The practice is looking for a capable, resourceful, dynamic and community-minded team player, with the ability to easily adapt between routine primary healthcare needs and urgent/critical presentations. Join the dedicated, talented and committed practice team in providing healthcare services to their remote and rural communities. The nature of the location brings a wide range of clinical presentations, including medical and trauma emergencies, for which the practice is well resourced with custom built facilities and equipment.
The position available is for 0.8 FTE comprising 0.6 FTE plus 0.2 FTE as Clinical Manager, however there is the flexibility for this to be arranged according to experience. The on call requirements are 1 weeknight/week on-call including PRIME and 1 in 6 PRIME weekend and weekend clinic / on call cover.
Experience in a remote, rural location is desirable and PRIME provider registration is essential. For the right candidate, there is potential to take a lead in clinical management/directorship in the practice, providing mentorship to the clinical team, and advice to the community-owned business Board of Directors.
There is some flexibility around an earlier start date as well as the option of commencing PRIME cover earlier than the rest of the contract and extending beyond the contract term.
A competitive remuneration package is on offer with details available on request.
Allowances can be provided for assistance with relocation and accommodation. A PRIME vehicle is available for both the weeknight and weekend on duty with access to an additional practice vehicle for work-related trips (subject to availability).
