About the opportunity: 
This is an excellent opportunity for an experienced Rural General Practitioner to join our expanding practice in Scottsdale. Our well-equipped, purpose-built facility boasts five consulting rooms, a three-bay treatment room, a procedure room and on-site pathology. Operating hours are 8am-6pm Monday to Friday, with a Saturday clinic from 9am-11am. The medical centre is an AGPAL accredited practice. 

Ochre Health Medical Centre Scottsdale works cooperatively with our satellite medical centre in the nearby coastal town of Bridport which is open 3 days per fortnight. GPs at the practice also provide VMO support to the adjacent Scottsdale Hospital. The Scottsdale Hospital has 19 acute care beds, an Outpatient and Emergency Service, low-risk maternity, physiotherapy, radiology and visiting services. The hospital also includes the James Scott Wing Nursing Home with 30 residential aged care beds. 

This DPA location is just an hour’s drive from Launceston airport, in a picturesque rural town located amidst rolling green hills and rich pasture land in Tasmania’s North East. Scottsdale is home to 2,500 people and, as the main population centre in the region, it has a wide range of shops and services, as well as highly regarded schools. 

With fertile soil and a mild climate, the region’s main industries are pine plantation logging, dairy and potato farming with local wineries nearby. Just outside Scottsdale is also the world’s largest lavender farm, the Bridstowe Lavender Estate. At 260 acres, the sprawl of gently curving lavender rows transform the entire landscape into a stunningly photogenic vista, a popular destination for tourists and locals alike. 

A short drive from Scottsdale is Blue Derby, Tasmania’s world-renowned mountain biking park located in temperate rainforest. The nearby coastal town of Bridport is home to Barnbougle Dunes and Lost Farm Golf Courses, both ranked in the world’s top 25 by Golf Digest magazine, with the Dunes course ahead of the iconic Pebble Beach course in California and Kingston Heath in Melbourne. Bridport is also a great spot for river or sea fishing, and the Bridport Wildflower Reserve is worth a visit for a spectacular display of colour
