Dr Simon Holliday is looking to recruit a new partner, preferably with a Fellowship, to assist in registrar training.
Would prefer 10 sessions/week, but if you think the beautiful Manning Valley is for you, please get in touch. Many of the team have young families and the practice values work-life balance. If you prefer part-time work, the practice is prepared to negotiate this.
In your role as GP you will provide competent and compassionate primary care services to patients. This will involve managing patients with a variety of problems ranging from emergency to chronic. The successful applicant should be proficient in minor skin surgery and be willing and able to do a share of on-call, nursing home and home visits.
The practice has 5 permanent GPs and 2½ GP Registrars in a well equipped, fully computerised (Best Practice), busy, supportive and friendly dual site practice. Each site has full time nursing support and a dedicated treatment room.
There are weekly doctor’s breakfast meetings at a local café for peer support and to discuss clinical problems or to discuss journal articles. The practice is affiliated with the University of Newcastle for teaching and research purposes.
The practice is supported by the Manning Hospital, which provides specialist surgery, day surgery, general medicine, critical care, obstetrics, paediatrics, emergency services, oncology, palliative care, rehabilitation, high dependency nursing and mental health. Excellent education opportunities are offered in the area including public schooling, Anglican, Christian, Catholic or Seventh Day Adventist options as well as a TAFE college. The Manning area has a population of approx. 45,000 and it is 3½ hour drive north of Sydney and 2 hour drive north of Newcastle. Harrington is a growing community nearby with excellent family friendly surfing beaches.
The post commences in February 2019, but the practice is willing to wait for the right person, so give us a call!
