Practice Details:

This purpose-built facility has a newly renovated medical centre, with a co-located hospital which includes an urgent care centre, 10 acute beds, and a residential care facility with 19 high care and 15 low care beds.

On-site allied health practitioners include physiotherapy, radiography, ultrasonography, OT, mental health workers, social worker and a diabetes educator. We also have visiting dental, podiatry, mental health and drug and alcohol services.

Accident and Emergency skills are important as the urgent care centre provides 24 hour emergency care to the community. The nearest referral centre is Albury-Wodonga Health which is 90 minutes away by road. The team of existing GPs will provide support to the new GP if desired.

After hours on call commitments for the hospital and urgent care centre are 1 in 3 weeknights and 1 in 4 weekends, with patients triaged by experienced nursing staff and medical officers only called after hours when necessary.

A paediatrician visits once a month. A visiting surgeon performs a surgical list including endoscopy and minor procedures on a monthly basis, and there is opportunity for the successful applicant to provide GP anaesthetic care for these lists if qualified.
