This is a large group practice offering mixed billing. The practice provides rural generalist health services to over 15 thousand people in the district, on both sides of the QLD/NSW border. They are passionate about supporting our community, clinical teaching, achieving excellence through innovation, and reconciliation with Australia's first peoples. The Medical Centre is a renowned teaching practice and their doctors have a long history of involvement in General Practice training through mentoring medical students, junior doctors, and registrars. They provide antenatal and postnatal care, immunisations, Indigenous health outreach, well established chronic disease clinics, palliative care, a rostered after-hours service, aged care, and holistic care for our patients from pre-conception through to palliative care.
It's worth mentioning that their 5 practice partners all came to Goondiwindi as junior doctors and then returned after attaining their advanced skills. This speaks volumes about their team, their opportunities, and the town of Goondiwindi. The local hospital is staffed by doctors from this medical centre and you have the option of a hospital appointment should you wish. Goondiwindi Hospital supports visiting Obstetrics, Gynaecology, Cardiology, General Surgery and Mental Health services. This medical centre hosts the bi-annual Gundy Medical Muster which coincides with the renowned Gourmet in Gundy Festival.
The medical centre is a family-friendly practice. Specialist GPs have access to flexible working arrangements and negotiable remuneration will be reflective of your experience and commitment to the practice.
The medical centre offers an after-hours service to Goondiwindi and surrounding districts.

For the safety of our doctors rostered for after-hours call, we have an arrangement with the local hospital where our on-call doctor meets the patient in the emergency department if a face-to-face consultation is deemed necessary.
The practice is looking for one full-time General Practitioner who is seeking to make a long-term commitment to the group practice.
