Miranda Medical Centre has been a part of the Sutherland Shire Community for over 25 years.

We are a fully accredited practice with a team of 20 General Practitioners, along with a comprehensive range of Allied Health, specialists and diagnostic services provided on-site. We are a training practice, and have supervised many registrars, who have gone on to achieve their fellowship. Whilst our medical centre provides a broad range of general family medical services, many of our doctors have special interests, and we cater for each of these by incorporating clinics in; skin cancer, occupational health, cosmetic, and womens health. We are ideally located in the heart of Miranda’s CBD, close to the train station and bus stops and directly opposite the Miranda Westfields shopping centre. Sutherland Hospital is our nearest major tertiary hospital and is located only 1km from our medical centre.
We are a privately owned practice, backed up with more than 30 years of practice management experience.
Our practice currently has 20 General Practitioners and a number of them have practiced with us for over twenty years. We have a wide variety of General Practitioners from all backgrounds and experiences, working in our harmonious and team based practice.
Miranda is classified as an RA1, Inner Metropolitan Area. As a Metropolitan practice in Sydney, we are looking for unrestricted Vocationally registered General Practitioners, but can also offer after-hours or 6 month locum positions to those doctors with 19ab restrictions.

Our practice is open 8am – 10pm weekdays, and 8am- 8pm Weekends and Public Holidays. We can offer flexible hours, and as we are a walk-in practice you can take as long with every patient as they require.
We have four treatment rooms, two of which are designed as procedural rooms. We operate a skin cancer clinic at the practice, so we are also interested in talking with doctors who would like to specialise in skin cancer checks and procedures. We have all the essential equipment on-site including; an audiometry machine, spirometer, alcohol breath testing, and all emergency and skin cancer related equipment. Our nurses have also been trained in the management of fractures with plaster and fibreglass.

OTHER CLINICAL SERVICES

The Sutherland Shire has a largely Caucasian population. We see a wide mix of patient presentations, and our doctors enjoy the variety of medicine that this represents. We have a large elderly population, but also many younger families and working age groups.
Our practice Bulk-Bills for all eligible services.
We have an exceptionally high demand for our services, and all doctors are kept busy with a constant flow of patients during their working hours. Patient demand is particularly acute at the moment since the recent departure of two of our doctors, who returned to the UK.
Miranda is the commercial hub of the Sutherland Shire. We are close to the coast, have one of the largest Westfields in Australia directly opposite our building, and are fortunate to have an excellent local hospital nearby. It is a great area to bring up a young family, and is close enough to Sydney to be commutable for the universities and for doctors with spouses needing to work in the inner city.
SKILLS OR INTERESTS SOUGHT
Our practice has the size and infrastructure to cater for any special interest that you may have. We will actively promote your interests to our other clinicians and patients.
We have had two doctors return to the UK after working at our practice for a number of years, so we now require the services of an additional few doctors to cater for the patient demand generated by their absence.
No On-call, nursing home or home visits are required (although nursing home visits can be arranged for a doctor who enjoys this work). We can offer you a choice of working hours. Competitive remuneration package will be offered, in line with our other doctors.
Doctors who are looking for weekend work, short-term locum work, or doctors looking for a position between locums are encouraged to contact us for a confidential discussion.
If you are looking to work at a busy, well managed and efficient practice, then we are the practice for you!!!
