Wynnum Manly Family Practice

VR GP Required for established practice on Brisbane's beautiful bayside.

Established in 1993, we are a busy, practitioner owned and operated practice seeking a VR GP to join our team long-term, on either a full-time or part time basis. We offer competitive remuneration (70% of private billing), attractive working conditions (especially family-friendly), and located in Wynnum on Brisbane's beautiful Bayside, a perfect balance of lifestyle and location.

Following the recent departure of a full-time GP, we are looking for a VR GP to join our team to meet increasing patient demand.

Who are we? A busy family-owned and operated general practice, we pride ourselves on providing the highest standards of patient care whilst maintaining a workplace that is enjoyable, collegiate, and family-friendly. We offer the full range of services that would be expected of a typical "general" practice. Having been established in 1993, the practice has even longer ties to the area, with its founder (Dr. Michael Podagiel) having worked as a GP in Wynnum since 1978.  

Where are we? Located in the Wynnum CBD, we have numerous pharmacies, specialist consulting rooms, pathology providers (SNP & QML), radiology (Qld XR) and allied health providers within easy walking distance.   Also within walking distance are two major supermarkets, multiple speciality shops and cafe's.  The surrounding area is currently undergoing significant development and rejuvenation, with a number of unit blocks, restaurants and a cinema complex currently under construction nearby. Please note that as this is not a DWS location, applicants require vocational registration.

Who are we looking for? After the recent departure of a full-time GP, we are looking for a vocationally registered (VR) GP to join our practice. This would be on either a full-time or part-time basis, with a view to a long-term relationship.

What do we pay? We are a private billing practice offering competitive remuneration (70% of receipts).

What do we offer? We're fully accredited (2018), and Doctors all have their own consulting rooms (no need to "desk-swap"), and on-site parking.  We have a dedicated reception team, and are in the process of implementing an online booking and reminder system. We have a dedicated procedure room (ECG, spirometer, defibrillator, nebuliser) and a practice nurse. In particular, we recognise the importance of family, and supporting a family-friendly working environment and roster is important to us.

Why should you join us? The Wynnum Manly Family Practice is owned and operated by doctors, for doctors, and we believe that general practice is a wonderful vocation. We have no requirement for number of hours or days worked, patients seen per hour, or billings raised. We are also fully independent, there are no expectations for choice of preferred pharmacy, allied health, radiology, and pathology providers.

What do we want? We want our doctors to come to work, see as many patients as they want, work the hours they want, and therefore earn the income of their choice whilst enjoying their lifestyle and maintaining their desired "work/life balance".
