General Practitioners (GPs)
headspace, Nowra, Wollongong and Goulburn centres are currently looking to increase the number of GPs working out of the centres.
headspace centres offer free youth health services for young people aged 12-25 years. The centre employs a multidisciplinary team of psychologists, counsellors, youth workers, GPs and other staff to support the health and wellbeing of young people with a focus on mental health.
Working as a member of the headspace team offers GPs the opportunity to provide bulk-billed services to young people as part of a collaborative and holistic model of care, in an environment that encourages the development of ongoing and therapeutic relationships with clients and multidisciplinary case consultation.
Grand Pacific Health (GPH) is the lead agency for three headspace centres in Wollongong, Nowra and Goulburn, as well as operating two GP super clinics in Shell Cove and Nowra. As a member of the broader GPH team you will receive the support available as part of a large not for profit primary health organisation that operates across the Illawarra, Shoalhaven and Southern NSW region.
