About The Practice & The Team
We’re seeking a General Practitioner to join a General Practitioner owned, mixed billing practice in Nimbin, NSW.
Seeking a General Practitioner as one will be leaving towards the end of the year- the clinic is looking for someone full time to join them. You’ll work alongside 4 General Practitioners and have nursing support every day you work, as well as a nursing administrator. Nurses provide support in Immunisations, Health Assessments, Chronic Disease Management Plans, Spiro, Wound Dressings, ECG, Procedures Assisting, and Ear Syringing and their friendly administration team are also there to help.
The practice has been in the community since 1982 and sees a patient demographic that has a high level of mental health and chronic disease. The community is highly intelligent and creative, and therefore needs a good support system in its local medical team. An interest in chronic pain management, drug addiction and mental health would be a great fit for this practice.
The practice is open 9am – 5pm, Monday to Friday and is seeking someone to work those hours. There is also an on call commitment 2 days per week and one weekend per month.
The practice is the only group practice in town, and has a sister practice 30 minutes away in Kyogle, which also has its own hospital so for someone looking to come with their partner who is also a medical practitioner- this would be perfect.
Current General Practitioners are seeing approximately 26 – 28 patients per day on average, with an average income of $30,000/month gross from the practice, and $10,000 – $15,000 per month providing the minimum VMO coverage.
The practice is looking for someone to move to the local area- Lismore is not far away. The community needs consistency and so they want someone who has the intent to stay long term. Prior to accepting the role, we would encourage a Doctor to visit the practice to meet the team and see how the practice works to feel confident they’re making the right choice.
The existing team has a great practice culture which is promoted by regular team meetings, and the Doctors will usually catch up for a beer on a Wednesday night. It’s a really lovely team!
