Why we choose to represent this practice:

It’s no secret that the DWS zoning has seen a boom in the number of practices opening up in Melbourne’s west. The hardest thing for GPs to work out when they are trying to choose a practice to work at, is whether the patient numbers are going to be there, or if the practice is just hoarding doctors while they still have DWS status.
We have helped the owner of this practice place GPs since 2014 and have seen the genuine need for another GP to help meet patient demand! With a 20 minute commute from Port Melbourne, this is one of the closest DWS positions to the city. If you are sick of low patient numbers, and want a quick commute from the city to a DWS practice, contact Hanni to find out more about this opportunity while it lasts!
