Job description

  • Remuneration - Competitive packages with salary packaging options available.

  • Teaching hospital


The Position:

The Consultant Psychiatrist is responsible for the mental health assessment, treatment and management of patients with mental health illness in the area. This includes the provision of service to their families and carers. You will work as a clinician within a multidisciplinary team environment and work closely with other agencies to promote close community partnerships.


The Consultant Psychiatrist leads the multidisciplinary team to provide specialist mental health services to patients. In this role, you will promote patient safety and quality of care. You will provide leadership, orientation, training, supervision and education, where relevant, for Doctors in Training, medical officers and other health workers.


The Location:



Located almost equally between Adelaide and Melbourne on the Limestone Coast, South Australia’s second largest city has got it all.  Beautiful heritage buildings and parks, fantastic food and world-class wineries, a wide range of shopping, entertainment and an interesting mix of museums, galleries and markets will keep you busy. This city also has a regional airport, with both Melbourne and Adelaide only a 1 hour flight away.   

For the nature lovers, dormant volcanoes dominate the skyline, while secret caves deep underground harbour precious relics and hidden waterways.  Sinkholes unearth the past, there craters transformed into spectacular lakes and sunken gardens. And the ocean is only 20 minutes away. 


Green open spaces, a relaxed and friendly country-town lifestyle, sporting facilities abound, house prices being well below the national average and plenty of schooling options, make this location a great place to raise a family. In fact, there are currently 8 childcare centres, 17 primary schools, 6 secondary schools and 2 universities. 


This city strikes the ideal balance between the vibrant lifestyle of a big city and comforts of a small-town.


The Facility:

The hospital is the largest hospital in rural South Australia. It provides specialist services to a population of around 95,000 people and is the referral hospital for the region.  These include obstetrics, gynaecology, paediatrics, day and inpatient surgery, anaesthetics, 24 hour accident and emergency, community health, aboriginal health, aged care services as well as many other specialty areas.


This hospital is both a teaching hospital and a work placed based assessment facility, meaning it attracts great junior support.
