Working excessive hours? Tired of endless paperwork? Feel undervalued?

Just a few of the many questions GPs working in the UK are asking themselves on a regular basis.

Now is the perfect time to consider a new career in Australia!

With a working week of 40 hours, next to no paperwork and annual earnings in excess of £200,000, it’s not surprising so many doctors are now making the move down under.

Prospect Health are working with one of the UK’s largest Primary Health Care Providers looking for UK trained GPs to join their ever growing team.

The Company

Primary Health Care Limited has over 70 medical centres (and growing!), a training institution and an extensive infrastructure, meaning they are one of the leading healthcare providers in Australia.

Having been established for over 30 years they enjoy a great reputation for quality of care and their doctors are given the freedom to provide unrivalled medical attention without the weight of paperwork experienced in the UK.

These fully integrated medical centres offer a number of services including Primary Care, Dentistry, Radiology, Pathology, Physiotherapy and a number of other services in different centres.

Having a centralised training institution allows their doctors access to extensive training and development, a key component many doctors that have made the move have factored into their decision.

With large numbers of UK trained doctors already working for them they have experience of transitioning doctors from UK to Australian Practice.

The Role

Working alongside multiple GPs in an amazing medical centre, you would be clinically focussed and enjoy the clinical side of medicine. Here are a few of the key points:

  • Working hours are 40 hours per week. No more than this is required and is entirely optional
  • Work alongside 5 – 18 GPs
  • Minimal paperwork, all paperwork is completed during consultation time
  • Average consultation time of 14 minutes
  • Full access to professional development giving you the chance to develop clinically
  • Work in any of the major Australian Cities (Avoid DWS restrictions!)
  • Contracts between 6 months and 5 years and are easily renewable
  • Average earnings of around £210K
  • Many UK trained doctors are earning in excess of £250K
  • Option to take up front lump sum of £250K - £300K based on a 5 year contract



The relaxed way of life in Australia has encouraged many UK healthcare professionals to make the journey and set up life there.

With more sunshine, warmer weather and the majority of the population living within close proximity to white sandy beaches, it’s an enviable way of life and one that could be yours.

The outdoor lifestyle is a key factor for many in making the move. Whether it’s families bringing children up in a place they can be outside away from TV’s and Tablets or couples and singles simply looking for a more adventurous social life, Australia can offer it all.

We have vacancies in most of the major cities including Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and Canberra. We can offer positions that other agencies are unable to as the sole UK supplier to one of Australia’s largest Primary Health Care organisations.

You can choose the city or region that best suits your lifestyle. Each location offers something different and Prospect Health can guide you on each to see what suits your needs most. With short term commitments available, this is something you can test before having to make this a long term move. You can even choose to spend 6 months in each city if you wish!

Whilst the cost of living is slightly more expensive than that of the UK, after tax earnings are more than double, giving you far more money.
