The Position

Lower Eyre Family Practice are seeking an additional GP to join their experienced team. The GP will service patients at our Cummins clinic as well as our Branch clinic in Coffin Bay. Experience in emergency medicine is essential, as the GP will work on a shared roster providing on call services to the Cummins and District Memorial Hospital. A wide range of clinical presentations occur after hours including farming and motor vehicle accidents.

The Practice

The practice has a clear focus on chronic disease management, aided by three established practice nurses. The Cummins Hospital and the Miroma Hostel Nursing Home are located next to the practice. The practice boasts many visiting allied health professionals that provide care for our community, including a private physiotherapist visiting weekly, a private dietitian visiting fortnightly and a psychologist visiting monthly. Our patients also have access to visiting public allied health services at the Cummins Hospital provided through Lower Eyre and Port Lincoln Community Health Services.

The Community

The township of Cummins, on the lower Eyre Peninsula, is a central hub for farming and agriculture. The population of the town is approximately 1,000, however the practice services patients from surrounding areas of Coffin Bay, Yeelanna and Lock, increasing the number of patients to 3,000.
