About our Client, your new employer:
Wheels of Wellness commenced life as a social enterprise back in 2014 – they are now a registered charity and not–for–profit organisation providing crucial health and social support to the most disadvantaged, vulnerable members of the Cairns community. The Wheels of Wellness service is provided by a very special group of medical professionals and volunteers who deliver free, focused medical and social support.

Relying on partnerships, grants, and donations, their delivery model is both mobile and a fixed service, which uses GP, Health Worker and Social worker clinics to engage, support and deliver health care to our forgotten members of society – people disadvantaged by domestic abuse, homelessness, poverty and those at risk of homelessness.

To use their own words: Simply put: our doctors, nurses and support staff go out into our community and provide medical care to those that need it, where they need it.

A little about the role:
We are seeking a part-time or a locum VR GP to commence mid-November. This opportunity will suit a GP who is flexible, dynamic and has a genuine desire to really make a difference in the lives of our invisible community members. The aim is to get these folks back on track by helping them to achieve better health outcomes. Clinics are run at their Wheels of Wellness “Hub”, Anglicare, and via their mobile services to a range of in-need locations across Cairns. When clinics are mobile you will have access to a fully equipped, air-conditioned and purpose-built medical van as your office. The van is quite remarkable.

At all times, you will be well supported by a Social Worker, Health Worker and SMO. The service is fully bulk billed, they aim to run to 30 min appointments however due to the complexities associated, the focus is at all times on quality.
Creating and nurturing relationships with referral partners and key community stakeholders will be highly desirable and assist in Wheels of Wellness’s holistic approach to healthcare.

Skills and Experience:
Ideally, you will have 5 or more years’ experience, sound MBS knowledge as well as experience in:
  • Indigenous Health
  • Chronic Disease
  • Mental health
Due to the vulnerability of the individuals who utilize this service, you will need to be an innovative problem solver, passionate about thinking outside the box to ensure that the very best, comprehensive healthcare is provided. Your strong social conscience will be your main driver in the delivery of exceptional healthcare.

About the Location:

As the heart of the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef and Wet Tropics rainforest, Cairns pulses with energy.
