  • Potential to earn $550K – $650K+
  • Sign-on bonus
  • Vehicle provided

We are looking for GP VMOs who share our purpose and values to join our network in Lightning Ridge.

In addition to the General Practice, this role will also include coverage of the NSW Health Multi Purpose Service including on-call responsibilities for ED, inpatients and aged care as a Visiting Medical Officer. Telehealth support exists within the service for CAT 3-5 presentations occurring out of hours. A very attractive daily rate for Hospital work is incorporated into the overall package.

Making a difference is at the heart of what we do. We believe we make a bigger and better difference together. Our powerful GP eco-system is transforming healthcare throughout rural and regional Australia with:

  • Working together to support one another to create healthier communities.
  • Collaboration and connections for you to promote preventative care and curate future health outcomes for greater good and innovation.
  • Shape your medical career around your individual lifestyle, clinical approach, and location preferences

Your personal difference

Certainly, you will have General Registration or Vocational Registration with AHPRA. But we are looking beyond the basics for a GP VMO who lives and breathes our purpose and values. 7-minute medicine is not part of your vocabulary. Rather, you take a
determined all-bases-covered approach to solving medical problems and keep the patient at the heart of everything you do. Your thirst for innovation and upskilling is matched by a passion for sharing your own unique ideas, experience, and expertise.

Location settings to live life your way

Famous for its opal mining and unique outback flavour Lightning Ridge attracts over 80,000 tourists a year drawn by walk in mines, opal/jewellery wholesalers and a bustling art scene. It remains one of the few places in the world where black opals can be found and has attracted fortune seeking miners since the trade took off there in the early 1900s. “The Ridge” is located 729 km north west of Sydney via Mudgee and Dubbo; 773 km via Newcastle and Muswellbrook; and 78 km north of Walgett. It is 64 km south of the Queensland border.
