Don Medical Clinic is a small 3-5 doctor practice in North West Tasmania. Devonport is a coastal seaside town with low cost real estate , good local schools and sports groups. The practice was established in 2014. This area of Tasmania struggles to get new GPs to the area and Gp registrars. Our recent Gps have left to return to the mainland to be with family. We are looking for Gps who would like to relocate and who like the small practice concept. The practice has a diverse patient base, of all ages, but with a preponderance of younger group.
It is a youth friendly and LGBTI friendly practice that is well linked to local and statewide services. There is an option to become a partner in the future. The job will involve part time or full-time work, there is opportunity to specialise in varying fields within general practice. We have a great team of reception and nursing staff .
We also access specialist services via telehealth.The practice offers acute care and focuses on early intervention and prevention and has well developed chronic disease program.
