Sydney and New South Wales

Sydney is one of the world’s best cities.

Sydney is a big city, by far the largest in Australia. The whole metropolitan area has a population of 4.5 million and extends from Wyong in the north to Wollondilly in the south – about 130 miles. To the west, it extends as far as the Blue Mountains – about 100 miles away. The main part of the city though is a 10 sq mile section centred on the famous Opera House.

There are some GP jobs in the outer suburbs of Sydney, otherwise the main vacancies in New South Wales are on the coastal strip to the north and south of Sydney. Plus, we have a few inland in more rural NSW

There are fewer jobs around in NSW now as the DWS (District of Workforce Shortage) restrictions have been extended to cover most of Sydney and quite a few of the regional towns and cities as well. You should also be aware that with relatively slow population growth compared to Perth or Brisbane, Sydney and the nearby satellite towns don’t have the numbers of new patients to support extra GPs. With this in mind, it’s best, if you can, to look a bit further out where there fewer doctors per 100,000 patients.

I decided to make the move to Australia in December 2011 to work as a GP. It had always been an ambition of mine to move out there. In all honesty though I had no idea where to start. I searched online and emailed an agency. Paul emailed me back straight away with a lot of initial information and we arranged to talk. After a long discussion with him (he was very patient as I had a LOT of questions), to cut a long story short he sent me a lot of information about available jobs and how to make the move. I basically let Paul know the jobs I was interested in and he gave me more info and set up interviews (this all happened very quickly). Anyhow after the interview (for the job I liked) I was offered the job and accepted the contract. As I discovered a little bit at a time moving to Australia can be very time consuming and difficult with all the procedures and paperwork needed. Paul also put me in touch with Monique who is based in Australia. So I now basically had 2 contacts to ask questions. As I mentioned previously I had a lot of questions. I can’t even begin to describe how helpful and easy it was to communicate with them both. If I had a question, or if there was a problem it was sorted out asap. Moving to Australia as a doctor is hard, but Paul and Monique made it so easy for me, it was just more time consuming than difficult (collecting all the paperwork). Had I tried to do this without them I would have struggled an awful lot. Not only do they help you with the medical paperwork, they will also give advice on living in Australia and also help with other things that will need to be done to facilitate the move. They will talk you through every thing that needs to be done in a manner that makes things seem straightforward!

Now I’m here, I still have contact and the little things and attention to detail, such as phone calls to see how I’m settling in is amazing. I love the place, the job and I don’t think i would be here now without their help.

I can quite honestly say this is a fantastic service and i would recommend it to anybody! They will talk you through every thing that needs to be done.
