This associate is keen to retire and has been with the practice for 17 yrs.
The premises and service company are owned by an ex-lawyer, and he leaves the GPs to their own devices and provides whatever they need and the practice is run very well.
The clinic is in a nice suburb and the GP's are mixed billing, bulk-billing only for concessional patients and children. This is an ideal opportunity for a VR GP to come into, who wanted to practice in this location without significant financial investment in bricks and mortar.
The current GP has been one of the senior doctors of the centre since 1999 and has wide experience in general practice. The current GP only owns his personal examination equipment, everything else is supplied.
The Practice is open 0800 to 1730 hours, Mon to Fri, and they have a deputizing service contracted for after hours. If the new GP was keen the surgery could open on a Saturday morning.
The building was a new purpose designed build in 1993, in the Federation style, with high ceilings, open and airy, with a veranda right round, fully air-conditioned, and with plenty of dedicated off-street parking.
There is a cafe on one end of the building, with al-fresco dining, and also a host of other allied health professionals, like psychologists, speech therapists, dietitian, rehabilitation team, and a couple of our Dr's are specializing in dermatology, and run a skin clinic.
The whole lot is administered by the building owner, a lawyer, and his service company provides all plant, equipment, computer network, staff and other associated requirements. GP's have no financial commitment towards costs as this is covered by a 35% admin fee we pay to the owner fortnightly.
There are 3 front desk receptionists, 2 nurses who cover the week between them, and a practice manager/receptionist. There are two other full time GPs, both ladies, and one (founder from 1993) male GP, who now does mostly skins, and one skin only Dr who comes on Fridays and is elsewhere during the rest of the week. It is a nice environment and a good team.
Over 1585 active patients on file.
