General Practitioner Permanent - Townsville

Townsville is a large regional centre in North Queensland with good access to tertiary services.
The practice is an accredited and a training practice for RACGP registrars and has been open for 12 months with 5 consulting rooms, a 2 bay treatment room and it is located alongside pathology and pharmacy services in a modern shopping centre near the city. There are currently 5 doctors working a mix of hours and the practice now requires additional clinicians to meet the growing demand.
The practice is mixed billing and is open 7 days and provides the full range of family medicine services, aviation medicine and also cosmetic medicine. The practice is happy to support clinical interests of their practitioners and bringing your own special interest would be encouraged. Clinics are run both in the main practice and there are additional outreach clinics including Drug and Alcohol rehabilitation site visits and a variety of local and remote sites including remote North Queensland on a fly-in-fly-out model. A DWS position would be available for weekend-only work in Townsville and in the remote and rural clinics but is not available at the main clinic in business hours.
Applicants must have AHPRA registration with full Medicare billing rights or training towards their Fellowship in ACRRM or RACGP and we are happy to teach and support registrars on the independent pathway or practice eligible pathway. Candidates interested in the outreach arm of the business should be happy to be passengers in small aircraft with short trips away from home, alternatively we are happy to support pilot training and self-flying.
The practice is open seven days and does cover nursing home patients but there are no after-hours on call requirements. The ideal candidate would contribute to the seven day roster and we would also be interested in hearing from GPs who would like a (DWS) weekend only roster.
