Do we have your attention? We have a health care crisis in our NINE Aboriginal communities all located to the east of Katherine in the NT.

What we have to offer!

Sunrise Health Service Aboriginal Corporation is now seeking two General Practitioners to join their dedicated team in the Katherine Region of the Northern Territory.

Katherine is paradise, and the landscape is just like Kakadu but 38% of our Aboriginal people have one or more chronic diseases.

As a registered GP, your role will primarily be developing chronic care management, as well as supporting preventative health checks to reduce chronic disease in the region.

Sunrise Health is an Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Service that is well supported by specialist medical and allied health services. As a registered GP you already have the necessary skills to perform this role as acute care is undertaken by our highly trained nursing teams and through the District Medical Officer.

These roles are being offered on a permanent full-time basis, however shared job arrangements (such as 2 months on, 2 months off) would be considered. We also require a GP from early May to early September each year.

You get to make a huge difference in our communities, while being are on the doorstep of an adventure/outdoors paradise with the best barramundi fishing in the territory and yes – lots of buffs! – parts of Crocodile Dundee were filmed here.

You will be based in Katherine (home of the Katherine Gorge and 3 hours’ drive from Darwin) and traveling to remote communities via air and road.

By working with Sunrise Health, you will get to make a difference, make lifelong friendships with the Aboriginal community, be well rewarded and give full play to your adventurous spirit and do a little bit of your own version of Dundee! So, are you up for the experience?

What you get!

Your dedication will be rewarded with a highly attractive remuneration package circa $400,000 incl. super and a range of benefits including:

  • Every Friday in Katherine town office
  • 6 weeks leave per year;
  • Up to 10 days study leave;
  • Phone and laptop;

  • Annual housing allowance of $20,000 while in Katherine;
  • 9.5% superannuation;
  • Not for profit salary packaging benefits; and
