Why GPs choose Ochre to further their careers

By , Melinda McCarthy published on 22/07/2020 General Practice, Permanent Jobs,

Whether you’re a General Practitioner wanting to take a step up in your career or a Registrar looking for a training position where you’ll be fully supported and mentored by the best, you can be confident that Ochre has your best interests at heart.

Ochre Recruitment was founded 19 years ago in the NSW Outback town of Bourke by Dr Hamish Meldrum and Dr Ross Lamplugh, two procedural GPs who still own and lead the company.

When they opened their first Ochre Health Practice, they did so based on three simple principles:

  1. They would only manage a clinic they were happy to work in themselves
  2. They would only engage doctors they would be happy to take their kids to, and
  3. They would try to exceed expectations in everything they did.

Today, these principles resonate with all doctors who work at Ochre Health Practices and is one of the many reasons why we have seen steady growth in the number of doctors wanting to work at our practices. 

Ochre Health 2020 Workforce

Ochre GPs not only provide healthcare, they also inspire, manage, and lead. They are clever, courageous, and compassionate. They make a difference to the health and prosperity of the communities they serve.

Doctors choose to work with us because we care. We are not about “seven-minute medicine”. We are also not about quick diagnoses and referrals, nor “churning and burning” our doctors, staff, or patients. We are a growing network of practices. 

Ochre Recruitment Consultants ensure we have well-qualified doctors with strong experience who are genuinely focused on health outcomes, not just the transaction of getting a patient in, doing a quick assessment and getting a patient out.

We give our doctors everything they need to provide comprehensive care to patients and to keep communities healthy.
