At Latrobe Community Health Service (LCHS) you’ll be part of a positive and passionate workplace. We’re dedicated to providing you with career opportunities through work that is rewarding and meaningful within the community.
Our integrated service model means you'll be providing your specialist expertise as part of a holistic solution for patients.
We currently have positions available for General Practitioners (GPs) to join our team and work from any of our five GP clinics located across Gippsland.
Within our Gippsland service, you will have access to a range of interdisciplinary teams of staff and services including Podiatrists, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Nurses, Dietitians, Clinical Psychologists/Counsellors, paediatrics service, diabetes education service, chronic disease management service and more.
We have an onsite GP Practice Manager, Medical Director and program manager to ensure you are supported in your work.
One of the advantages of working in a community health organisation is that we deliver over 118 health and community services from LCHS sites, into client homes and via other community service providers.
Next to our dedicated reception staff, we also employ Registered and Enrolled Nurses at every site who assist our Doctors with chronic disease management and health assessments, immunisations, wound dressings and any other services that the Doctors request.
Our Traralgon, Churchill, Moe and Morwell clinics are all classified as Distribution Priority Areas meaning we are able to accommodate international medical graduates.
The General Practice Rural Incentive Program (GPRIP) provides a financial incentive for GPs working in rural areas. Under the Modified Monash Model (MM) classification system, our clinics sit within MM3 – MM4 rating. Under this category, in your second year of service, you would be eligible to entitlements of up to $8,000. Entitlement amounts increment annually after each year of service.
For those choosing to commute, our Warragul, Moe, Morwell and Traralgon sites are all easy walking distance from the respective railway stations.
We offer short term accommodation options and can provide additional support to ensure your move is smooth, whether it be just yourself or you and your family.
