What’s on offer?

We are a close-knit team who enjoy working together.

We recognise that doctors working part time in our clinic are often juggling many roles. Part of our initial induction is to provide comprehensive training and ongoing support to develop skills in areas such as prolapse and continence management, IUDs, menopause, and MTOP.

We also have robust management systems in place to ensure continuity of care over a workforce that works predominantly part time.

Clinic hours range from 8am to 6pm, Monday to Friday.

Doctors are contracted and renumeration is 65% of fees.
