Regional Custodial Medical Practitioners
When a person is taken into police care or custody, Victoria Police assumes a responsibility for their safety, security, health and welfare.
People in police custody have the same health needs as the rest of the community and therefore general practitioners or rural generalist doctors are ideally suited to this service.
We commonly see patients with general medical issues, presentations related to alcohol and other drugs and a wide spectrum of mental health conditions.
We provide a nurse-led service with secondary medical review in metropolitan areas. In regional areas care is provided by contracted doctors.
CHS is in the process of expanding its service provision in Regional Victoria and has opportunities for General Practitioners in Ballarat, Mildura, Horsham, Wodonga, Morwell and Warrnambool. If you are looking for an opportunity to make a valuable contribution to your local community and to earn a well - paid, part time, complementary income please consider working with CHS in your local community.
Requirements: AHPRA registered, General Practitioners with Vocational Registration (preferred) and Professional Indemnity Insurance.
