Work in Australia

For some doctors working in Australia is an ambition waiting to happen. The philosophy of Bluecross Locums is to take care of the well being of its doctors and that includes helping them to materialise their dreams - working in Australia is a lifestyle choice for the whole family not just the doctor.

Doctors who wish to practise in Australia must first be registered with the Medical Board in the State or Territory where they intend to practise. After a visa is granted, doctors must apply to Medicare Australia for a Medicare Provider Number if they will be working in general practice or will be prescribing drugs. Bluecross Locums works with a partner in Australia that can provide help and guidance with this process and find the job that is suited to the doctor's skills.

They will also help with the decision on where in Australia the doctor would like to work.

Options on location are far ranging. Australia is a big country covering a wide territory, but whatever the choice one thing is assured the Australian healthcare system is second to none with good employee relations and benefits that encompass the whole family.
