GP Jobs – DPA Replacement

Across Australia we have a range of great GP Jobs with DPA replacements (also known as DWS replacements). As the DWS/DPA map is generally updated annually  there are a range of locations that lose DWS/DPA status. However, when a GP leaves a practice in one of these locations that are no longer classified as a DPA, this allows for a replacement to be recruited.

Medicare requires a number of documents to process these applications for DPA replacement 19AB exemptions, our Registration Manager regularly deals with these and is able to stay on top of requirements as they do change. However, it is important to note that for an application to be successful the departing GP must:

  • Have worked a significant amount of time on a consistent basis
  • Generally worked more than 5 sessions per week
  • Be willing to sign a number of documents to close their provider number

It is also worth noting that the practice has 12 months to replace the GP, otherwise the exemption will expire. For any questions please call us on 1800 604 332.

  • We carefully review the paperwork that a practice provides us when they have a replacement exemption, and while it is unlikely that there will be issues with any jobs listed below, we are unable to guarantee Medicare will approve the exemption.
  • These jobs can be filled quickly (sometimes by the practice themselves or another recruiter). We regularly update information about the availability of these roles, however at times clients are slow to notify us when roles have been filled – so we aren’t able to guarantee the availability of any of the DPA exemptions below.
