Servicing the greater Shepparton area this after-hours service currently has 16 doctors (with eight doctors regularly participating in after-hours shifts). Due to consistent growth in patient numbers and to meet future business requirements, the service wishes to increase to two doctors per shift.
With the support of the local medical community, the after-hours service is backed by the largest network of home visiting doctors that has over 500 doctors who have cared for over 800,000 patients in the last year.
The service is open to offering opportunities to doctors who are considering transitioning to general practice and wish to trial before making a firm commitment. They are also open to assisting doctors to meet RACGP GPE components (up to 2.5 years) to enable them to complete FRACGP.
With future expansion plans in place, this newly developed service is open to discussing other geographical locations that may fit your needs.

Situated in the north and north-east of Victoria this stunning region is highly valued for offering a rural lifestyle close to Melbourne but with the peace and tranquility of country living.
There are plenty of recreational opportunities on the banks of the Goulburn River and the rich agricultural land surrounding Wangaratta yields gourmet produce and world class wines. The nearby alpine ranges are a playground for skiers in winter and fishing, bushwalking and cycling are popular in the summertime.
