Job Description:

Our vacancy has arisen due to the recent departure of a full time GP, who relocated to Brisbane.

No after-hours work would be required. There is also plenty of demand for a second VR GP to assist with Saturdays or Sundays on a fully private billing basis.

Administration:

Our consulting hours are Weekdays: 8.30am - 5.00pm, Saturdays: 8.30am - 12pm and Sundays 9.00am-12pm. We usually have 5-6 doctors working on average per day and appointments are scheduled in 15 minute timeslots. We have a very experienced practice manager as well as reception staff.
