The Opportunity

You'll be an integral part of the clinical team providing essential healthcare services in Lightning Ridge.

With a variety of GP sessions; ED cover; ward rounds and on call work all shared across the service we can ensure adequate rest periods. The multi-purpose service has 4 ED & 4 Acute beds, 1 respite bed and a 19 bed residential aged care service. The General Practice operates Monday to Friday and has mobile x-ray and visiting allied health specialists come to town.


The Location

Lightning Ridge may be remote but it is a thriving mining town filled hundreds of obsessed diggers hoping to find the famous black opal. Situated nearby the NSW and QLD border, it is 4 hours' from Dubbo Airport and known for its wildly eccentric and sometimes bizarre experiences. Stop by a glass house made from bottles, visit the iron church or walk around the local castle. And it doesn’t stop there, keep cool and stroll through and an underground museum where the art is carved into the stone walls. Lightning Ridge has some of the most unique experiences you won't find anywhere else.

Essential Criteria

You must be a vocationally registered GP (FRACGP or FACRRM) with recent rural emergency experience and a current ALS2 (or equivalent) certificate.
