Sippy Downs – VR GP

The Opportunity

We are currently seeking Experienced, vocationally registered General Practitioner (GP) required to join our RACGP award-winning medical centre on the stunning Sunshine Coast.

Our medical centre offers a wide range of allied health services, including radiology, pathology, pharmacy, psychology and physiotherapy. Our onsite fracture clinic allows doctors to fit, check and remove plaster casts, while patients can access bandages, crutches and other supplies from the onsite pharmacy. Next to a dedicated reception staff, we also employ five registered nurses who assist our doctors with Chronic Disease Management and Health Assessments, Immunisations, Wound dressings, Ear Syringing, Removal of Sutures and any other services that the Doctors request.

Ochre Medical Centre Sippy Downs was awarded Queensland General Practice of the Year in 2016 by the Royal College of General Practitioners (RACGP). This prestigious annual award recognises outstanding clinics for their approach to patient health and wellbeing, service scope and delivery. In making the award, RACGP praised Ochre Medical Centre Sippy Downs for its GP-led Fracture Clinic, its Hospital in the Home program, its strong commitment to Continuing Professional Development (CPD) training and support for GP Registrar training, and it’s involvement in community events including leadership in discussions around how general practice can assist in meeting the healthcare needs of the community with particular emphasis on the aging population of the Sunshine Coast. Ochre Medical Centre Sippy Downs has also been a winner of the Innovation Award in the annual AGPAL (Australian General Practice Accreditation Limited) and QIP (Quality Innovation Performance) Excellence Awards.

Our medical centre also works closely with the University of the Sunshine Coast, one of the SDDCA’s key corporate partners, in providing training opportunities for health science students.

The Location

The Sunshine Coast region is the jewel in Queensland’s tourism crown, with approximately 300,000 international visitors annually – to say nothing of the droves of Australians who visit for some down-time by the beach or just to thaw out during the winter months.

The abundance of great beaches, surf spots, resorts and entertainment venues right on the shoreline lends itself to a beachy, relaxed lifestyle. The winding waterways of the river delta which sprawls through Sippy Downs provide a convenient concourse for boating, with many houses in the area backing onto their own private mooring. As the home of the University of the Sunshine Coast, Sippy Downs is known as a university town, with a young, cosmopolitan population and all the conveniences of a big city.
