The Cloncurry Practice works in collaboration with the local hospital and Mount Isa Health District. Therefore doctors who choose to work in Cloncurry have the option of working in the Private Practice only, or can combine a position at the hospital with work at the Private Practice.
The links above describe individual positions. It is however possible to be a GP Registrar and work as one of the hospital doctors at the same time.
North West Queensland
Cloncurry was the birth place of the Royal Flying Doctor Service and first destination for Qantas. An original hangar for Qantas still exists at the airport today. The town is old by Australian standards and is the hub of North West Queensland with major road and rail networks. With a population of around 4000 the town is small but has significant infrastructure thanks to the booming mining sector.
Getting To and From Cloncurry
Although remote flight connections are good. Qantas operate a twice daily service from Mount Isa to Brisbane. QantasLink operate a week day service from Cloncurry to Townsville.
The positions at Flinders offer flexible holiday entitlements and with those positions that attract no on call requirements, regular opportunities exist for doctors to take leave and attend clinical training events.
