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 would strongly recommend Paul Brooks and Monique to GP’s and other relevant health professionals contemplating a move to Australia. After having contacted at least five different agencies dealing with GP’s relocating from the UK to Australia, Monique and Paul Brooks took the top spot in terms of understanding my requirements especially with the type of position my wife and I were looking for, the workings of the Australian Health Care, the paperwork involved, Immigration requirements, adjusting to the Aussie lifestyle etc. Their consistent help throughout the 10-12 month period prior to the move is definitely worth mentioning. They helped us settle on arrival in Australia and made our relocation process a smooth transition, especially as we had no prior local contacts. Now in Australia for a year I could not have entrusted my relocation to a better team. I would give them a 10/10 and wish them immense success in the future.
