About Red Lily Health
The Red Lily Health Board Aboriginal Corporation (RLHB) was formed in 2011 to empower Aboriginal people of the West Arnhem region and address the health issues they face through providing leadership and governance in the development of quality, effective primary health care services, with a long-term vision of establishing a regional Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Service.
Thanks to ongoing expansion, we now have an exciting opportunity for a General Practitioner looking to make a difference in the community.
About the Benefits
In addition to a pro-rata salary of up to $304,000 plus super, you will also receive optional salary packaging as well as future development opportunities for candidates who wish to eventually transition to 0.8 or 1 FTE. This will involve a stronger focus on executing and promoting health initiatives within the community to make even more of an impact.
For candidates located outside of Darwin, relocation assistance will also be available.
The successful candidate will have the unique opportunity to expand their career and conduct varied work in other roles during their time at RLHB. Working up to 6 days each fortnight, this means you can either maximise your earning potential or, alternatively, spend your time exploring this picturesque region. Whether you’re looking for a change in lifestyle, or the opportunity to conduct research while you carry out a fulfilling role, Red Lily Health is offering the ultimate work/life balance opportunity for dedicated general practitioners.
About the Role
A key tenet of your role will involve the integration of Indigenous cultural imperatives in the delivery of healthcare in the context of an Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Service.
You’ll achieve this by splitting your time primarily between clinical services and organisational duties, as well as occasional interactions with Health Advisory Groups as needed (e.g. providing responsive health advice at the request of local communities).
This is a unique opportunity to work with one of the world’s oldest living cultures, with unique clinical presentations as a result of the remote nature of the community.
This is a part-time position (ranging from 0.3 FTE to 0.6 FTE depending on your preference) that will see you travelling from Darwin one day a week, to Minjilang and Warruwi communities to provide clinical services, leaving another one day each fortnight for reviewing results, case conferencing, care planning, general admin, etc.
This role provides a unique opportunity for a GP to split their time between remote indigenous primary care in an ACCHS service, and mainstream urban GP practice, for example. Alternatively, it is an opportunity for the successful applicant looking for a balance between work and family, or those looking to combine work with their personal research and/or study goals.
Note: you will travel to and from the islands one day per week, leaving another one day each fortnight for following up on results, strategising, admin, etc.
