At the moment, Perth has more GP jobs than any other city in Australia.  Would it suit you to work as a family doctor in Perth, Western Australia? Metropolitan Perth occupies a narrow strip of coastal land on the south west side of Australia. It extends from  Mindarie in the north to Mandurah in the south – roughly  55 miles from top to bottom. And about 20 miles inland. In the middle is the Swan River, which was the name for the original colony set up by the British in 1826. Perth is on the north bank of the Swan River, with Fremantle on the southern bank. About 1.7 million people live in the metropolitan area of Perth, though this is growing fast. Mining and engineering industries in Western Australia use Perth as the hub and jumping off point for their activities and those industries are still expanding.

Western Australia is ten times the size of the UK but with a population of just 2.3million. 90% of its income comes from mining and petroleum. Most important is Iron Ore, accounting for 58% of exports. Next up is oil, then gold, alumina, coal and uranium. The economy is more closely linked with China than the west – a lot of these raw materials find their way to Chinese and other Far East factories Even though we’re seeing stagnation and cut backs here in the UK, Western Australia is still growing.

They’re expecting the population to double in the next 30 to 40 years. On a more immediate level, Western Australia needs a further 36,000 tradesmen over the next 4 years. Perth is 8th in the Economists league of most liveable cities

Although Perth is out on its own on the west of Australia, it does mean it is quite a bit closer to Europe and Asia. The time difference is +7hrs (Sydney is currently +9 hrs). Flying time to Singapore is about 4 hrs 30 mins (roughly the same to get to Sydney, less than getting to Brisbane, which is 5hrs away). London to Perth (via Singapore) is about 18hrs 30 min, usefully less than the 22 / 23 hours to Sydney. The climate is rather Mediterranean like with hot summers and cool, damp winters.

As well as GP jobs in Perth, there are quite a few vacancies in other areas if your spouse would like to work here as well. Mining, of course, where there is a whole raft of jobs. Often, you can be based in Perth and then fly in, fly out  (FIFO) to the mines in Western Australia on a rota. Teaching, Administration, Engineering etc.  Remember also that your spouse or partner can work unrestricted in Australia if you have a 457 visa (the usual visa that we help to arrange for a doctor)

Who can apply for this post?

To apply for this post, you must have had GP training in the UK,  Ireland or NZ. For the UK you should hold full GMC and specialist GP registration. Plus, you must be a MRCGP and have either a CCT or hold the old JCPTGP certificate or were assessed by PMETB as equivalent. For Ireland you must have full IMC registration and be a Graduate of ICGP holding MICGP membership. If you’re from New Zealand, you should hold a Fellowship with The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners (FRNZCGP).

First of all, let me thank you for the very kind and warm way of welcoming me at the interview. You have put a lot of energy in helping me with all aspects of my trip there and made me be at ease with the “solemnity” of this interview.
The hotel stay and the journey back were ok and rather uneventful.
Thank you for updating me on the process of getting a work permit since I am completely unfamiliar with it, but, I’m sure, for you it is a piece of cake so I rest assured that everything will work fine.
