Being at the helm of clinical support, you will provide expert virtual medical assessment and management to patients across more than 30 rural and remote hospitals in Western NSW.

You will have the opportunity to empower those in local teams, while also assisting with ongoing education and training.

This role is a telemedicine role, however there is an expectation that you will travel for orientation; once in the role you will be required to provide a minimum of 5 shifts working in the Local Health District with the purpose of establishing rapport and also to ensure remote support is provided based on lived experience.

Clinicians are also required to commit to regular shifts; at a minimum, one shift per week on average with an on call commitment to frequency of shifts.

Where you'll be working

In this position you will work from your home or usual office that must be well equipped with a reliable internet connection and telephone with surrounds that are appealing to the virtual patient experience. All other telecommunication equipment including a computer with camera will be provided. You will be virtually servicing up to 35 rural and remote health services, hospitals and smaller Multipurpose Services (MPSs) across the Western NSW Local Health District for expert care for patients with life threatening conditions, patients requiring specialist care that cannot be provided locally and will support the LHD transportation service that sits within the vCare model.

Western NSW Local Health District is one of the largest Local Health Districts in NSW covering an area of 246,676 square kilometres, similar to the size of Britain. We deliver innovative health services to an estimated resident population of approximately 276,000 people.

Our organisation is diverse in the health care it delivers boasting the largest rural mental health service in Australia, three major rural referral hospitals at Orange, Dubbo and Bathurst, 50 community health centres which provide access to a wide range of multidisciplinary primary, and community health services, 38 inpatient facilities including 25 MPSs and District Health Services at Mudgee, Cowra, Parkes and Forbes.

There are more than 30,786 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living in the Local Health District, representing 11.1% of the total population. This is significantly higher than the NSW average of 2.1%.
