Full Time and Part Time Positions Vacant

We are seeking 2 VR General Practitioners to join our long established Macksville Practice on the beautiful Mid North Coast of New South Wales.

We currently have three Specialist GPs and looking to extend to 4 or 5. We specialise in Chronic Disease Management and Family Medicine.

This is an opportunity not only to become part of a team of local health professionals, but also to enjoy a lifestyle which is the envy of many living in the major cities. Quality housing is very affordable just minutes from either of our practices, and you are surrounded by stunning natural beauty, fabulous uncrowded beaches, rivers & mountains. A brand new school has just opened close by, adding to longstanding older and well-established schools. Coffs Harbour with its modern jet airport and Southern Cross University is just 35 minutes away now on the new Pacific Motorway. Sydney is a 55 minute flight away, and Melbourne is 2hrs direct with Tiger. We are serviced by Qantas, Virgin, Tiger & Fly Corporate. 

Our Macksville & Hibiscus Medical Rooms are privately owned by the Principal, and both surgeries have a relaxed & friendly atmosphere using MD/PracSoft (LAN connected) and are AGPAL accredited. We are supported by 3 RNs, 1 EEN, and excellent Admin Staff. 

On site Allied Health Services include Pathology, Psychology, Podiatry and Audiology.

Macksville is already funded for a brand new State of the Art Hospital and work has started on its construction. Our local Macksville Hospital is part of the Coffs Harbour Health Campus which houses the main Specialist Centre and is well represented by all specialities. Port Macquarie, a now big and bustling city, is an hour away and Kempsey half that. Vacancies for VMOs at the local hospital are available if you are interested.  

THE MONEY

We are a mostly Bulk Billing practice, but it is at Doctor’s discretion.

You pay 30% of billings until established, then negotiable. There is the potential to earn a very attractive remuneration package, even working part time.

The Mid North Coast of NSW is an area of significant medical need. We turn away at least 20 potential patients per week so you will be looking to close your books in less than a year. AS FROM JULY 1, 2019, OUR PRACTICE IS NOW DPA – which is the old DWS, with the key difference taking into account demographics & socioeconomic status of patients living in our area. We are MMM4 & eligible to accept Overseas Trained Doctors who have completed most of their 10 year Moratorium.

The position offers as much or as little after-hours work as you wish. Part time work can also  be accommodated.  

INCENTIVES

$18,000 annual GP location incentive, RA 3 area.
Invitation to join the business side of the practice with envisaged significant bonus once established.

GRANTS

Applicants may be eligible for:

  • The General Practice Rural Incentive Program – GP Component (GPRIP) – please visit: GPRIP for eligibility criteria
