SKILLS OR INTERESTS SOUGHT
We are seeking to attract a GP that has an interest in a diverse range of medical attributes but with a particular emphasis on family medicine, including Paediatric and Women’s Health.
Our decision to advertise for a new doctor has arisen from organic growth in the practice and a recent refurbishment that has resulted in increased capacity at our surgery. One of our doctors is due to go on maternity leave shortly and we are looking for an additional GP to assist in taking over some of the overflow throughout this period of time.
Our doctors receive 65% of billings.
We request a minimum presence of 2-3 days / week to ensure the continuity of care for our patients including the timely follow up of results. There is no particular preference for days at this point in time. Our doctors are required to participate in a Saturday roster also.
