Scottsdale Doctors Surgery is a privately owned practice, situated in the small north-east Tasmanian town of Scottsdale with world-class golf courses, great beaches, bush-walking and wineries all within easy reach. The practice also has a branch surgery based in Bridport – a pretty seaside town around 25 kilometres away and the home of the famous Barnbougle Dune Golf Course, rated the number one public course in Australia.
The practice currently has four full-time doctors and two part-time doctors and is looking for another full-time doctor to join the team.
Opening hours are Monday to Friday from 8am to 6pm and Saturday morning 9am to 11am. After hours cover is shared on a roster basis and the surgery also uses the deputising service GP Assist. The Bridport practice is open two days per week.
The practice Scottsdale Doctors Surgery supports the North East Soldiers Memorial Hospital with 18 acute beds and two nursing homes – one high dependency and one low dependency – collocated with the hospital. As an accredited teaching practice, there is a regular intake of medical students, GP registrars and John Flynn scholars. A feature of the practice is its ability to provide a wide range of clinical experiences to doctors preparing to attain vocational recognition.
Situated in a purpose-built building, there are seven consulting rooms, a three bay treatment room, separate procedure room and onsite pathology; the branch surgery is relatively new and has three consulting rooms and a dedicated treatment room. Doctors working at the practice use the radiology services at the hospital (digital plain film services are available Monday to Thursday).
The practice provides shared obstetric care, and a school dental team is based in the hospital. The town is well supported by visiting health professionals in the fields of social work, mental health, psychology, physiotherapy, podiatry, paediatrics, cardiology, diabetes education, nutrition, exercise physiology, care co-ordination and Australian Hearing.
The practice employs a pool of nurses, with two on duty each day at Scottsdale and one at Bridport, a practice manager and four reception staff.
Enjoying AGPAL accreditation, the practice has a mixed billing policy and uses Medical Director and PracSoft.
What’s on offer? Scottsdale Doctors Surgery offers competitive earnings potential for a new doctor. In addition, Scottsdale is an eligible location for rural incentive payments and also for the Five Year Scheme, which allows an international medical graduate to reduce the moratorium.
A relocation grant is available from HR+ for vocationally registered GPs, subject to eligibility, and HR+ will work with the practice to arrange a comprehensive orientation program on arrival.
