Thank you for taking the time to read up about this practice. Below are a few things I would like to impart to you. Please do not hesitate to phone me on 02 6922 6855 / [email protected] if you wish to discuss anything. I would be more than happy to hear from you.
When it comes time for interviews, I am happy to facilitate this via Skype/Messenger if you live outside of Wagga Wagga.
Before you commence: In my role as Practice Manager, I am heavily focused on ensuring that you the registrar have an optimal training environment. From start to finish you will have my full support. When joining a medical practice there is a mountain of paperwork that needs to be completed. I will complete and send off all your paperwork before you commence here, and just have you fill-in any items that I cannot. Your name will be included on all our letterheads, signage and website etc.
Accommodation: If you want me to assist you with finding suitable accommodation I can help you. You may wish to travel to Wagga Wagga to look around the area. I would be happy to drive you around and show you suitable areas etc. I even have a tried and proven Air B&B who are happy to give long term accommodation to our registrars. This is located within easy walking distance to this practice and the Kooringal Shopping Mall, which is located next door to this practice (supermarket, post office, pharmacy, eateries, newsagent etc).
Day One: Your orientation on your first day will include dedicated sessions with a GP Supervisor, nursing staff and myself. Your appointment schedule will be set-up according to your experience and in consultation with yourself. You will never be put under any pressure to increase your patient load. Should you require a flexible schedule I will do everything I can to facilitate this (e.g. cannot consult between 3-3:45 pm as you need to pick children up from school each day). We always have more than enough patients to go around and you will not find yourself with a half empty appointment book. You will be given a roster listing all your weekly in-house tutorials for the entire term. Also you will be issued with your own set of keys to our premises and your own alarm code. The entire team at this practice will go out of their way to make you feel welcome and a part of our team.
Car Parking: We have off street parking for you, and all our doctors, at the rear of our building.
Staffing resources available to you: Of course I will always be available whenever you need me; however we have excellent reception staff who are very experienced in working with registrars and who will give you all the help you need. We also have three RN’s and two EN’s on staff, all of whom are very experienced and who will prove to be a great resource for you.
In conclusion: I can tell you with all sincerity, that every effort will be made to make your training experience not only as productive as possible but a memorable one for all the right reasons. We truly have a very experienced, high quality team of doctors only too willing to assist you in any way to achieve your Fellowship goal. You will always be considered as one of our team and treated with thoughtfulness and respect. Please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss anything further ([email protected]).
