The Opportunity


The Manilla Multi-purpose facility includes 12 acute care rooms, a two-bay emergency department, clinic rooms for local Manilla General Practitioners and visiting specialists, a birthing suite, treatment rooms, and work areas for community health services along with a four-bedroom self-contained staff accommodation complex. The facility also boasts 20-bed residential care bedrooms complete with ensuites, lounge, dining, and activities rooms for residents.

We are continuously on the lookout for Rural Generalists with sound clinical experience, and the ability to lead teams or work alone, with patience, flexibility, and respect for the communities they serve. From time to time due to local circumstances, we need help to cover ED only or GP only, occasionally.

If you're an ED Locum Doctor or VR GP with full AHPRA registration and have a passion or curiosity for rural medicine, contact Naomie Rapira on 0498 441 118 for a no-obligation discussion. Alternatively, register your interest with us online.

Manilla is a small rural New England town in New South Wales, located 45 kilometres northwest of the regional city of Tamworth. 

The Namoi and Manilla Rivers, are central to the town’s character and make fantastic playgrounds for water sports, fishing, boating, and camping, which attract many visitors.

Manilla’s main street is a fascinating display of period architecture, with Victorian and art deco facades, leadlight windows, wrought-iron balconies, and ornate verandahs. Heritage-listed buildings merge seamlessly with cosmopolitan street cafes, while history buffs rub shoulders with adrenaline junkies, paragliders and hang gliders.

The national paragliding and hang-gliding championships are held at Manilla each year. The annual vintage machinery display occurs on the June long weekend, the Festival of Spring Flowers in October and the Choral and Cod Festival in September.
