Contact Details

Ever considered working in a regional Emergency Department regularly, while earning locum rates and still maintaining a happy work/life balance? You can have it all in Port Stephens.

Tomaree Community Hospital provides health care to people living in Nelson Bay and surrounding areas. With a 14-bed adult ward, 5-bed Emergency Department and onsite GP Clinic, services provided include General Medicine, Geriatric, Palliative Care, adult and paediatric emergency care, adult acute medical inpatient care, adult emergency respite and postnatal care for women eligible for early discharge from their obstetric hospital

The modern and well-equipped Emergency Department operates across a mix of shifts per day. The ED is well supported by skilled nursing staff and an onsite GP who runs the Fast Track, seeing Cat 4 & 5 patients, meaning that you will see only those that need you most.

What we are looking for

Ideally, we’re looking for doctors wanting an ongoing FIFO arrangement or those who live locally and are looking for job security in a more permanent role while earning locum rates. If you are looking to relocate and call Port Stephens or the wider Nelson Bay region home, we can also help.

You’ll have the choice of ED day, ED night shifts, or a mix of both: full-time (5 days per week) or part-time (7 days on, 7 days off) with salary ranges of between $450k pa (part-time) - $819k pa (full-time) for 6 months work.

If you prefer ward shifts, you will earn $526k pa for 5 days per week & $368k pa for part-time (7 days on, 7 days off) for a commitment of 6 months.

Our partnership with HNELHD means we can represent and support you to ensure you have everything you need for an optimal work environment.

The Location

Port Stephens is known for its spectacular coastline and pristine waterways, boasting 26 beaches from sheltered outlets to ocean beaches.

There’s always something to do in Nelson Bay. Whether you embark on a journey of discovery where dolphins and whales grace the coastline, picnic surrounded by nature reserves, take a dip in the beautiful beaches or indulge in the fine foods, wine and cocktails from the local establishments. 

The shopping district close to the marina provides a great mix of specialty shops, supermarkets, cafes and restaurants as well as cinemas, art galleries, bowling club and a golf club.  

There are a variety of education options for the family, from pre-school to high school, with Newcastle University only 45 mins away.

Essential Criteria: To be eligible for this position, you must be registered with AHPRA with working rights in Australia.

Next Steps

If you are tired of working in different locations every other week, but don't want to relinquish the pay rate of a locum role, these opportunities are worth a close look. You'll provide continuity of care, enjoy peace of mind with job security and instead of spending time chasing locums, you'll be able to focus on your clinical work.
