When not on shift, explore the natural beauty and cultural richness of the area:
Coastal location. ED can get impressively busy, especially over the holiday period! Average 35-40 presentations daily but one day I worked over the Christmas/NYE period we got slammed with 71. Level of support varies depending on shift: #Morning 0800-1800 : Weekdays FACEM on site with you til 4pm, and you have the evening Dr with you from 1pm. # Evening 1300-2300 - solo Dr from 6pm # Night 2230-0800 - solo Dr You can call Coffs Harbour for advice and switch camera on. You can also call in local GP/anaesthetist. But when department is busy, you may get stuck with Cat1/2 with waiting room full and you’re it. No pathology on site just point of care iStat, only X-ray (no CT). No on call, good hourly rate and accommodation fantastic! Suitable for PGY5+ with rural ED experience and ALS2.
