What we offer – General Practitioners
Lifelong Healthcare Aged Care Services is a reputable healthcare organisation which gives general practitioners looking for a flexible, varied role an opportunity to cement their career in general practice in a supportive, collaborative working environment.
With a number of flexible working options, doctors can choose between full or part time hours, allowing them to fit work around their lifestyle. This model works well for GPs returning to work following parental leave, or anyone who is juggling other commitments.
Lifelong Healthcare doctors are part of a clinical team which meets regularly to discuss patient concerns, and whose members cover for each other during times of leave. This team is well-supported by administration and nursing staff, who act as liaisons between the patient’s family and the GP, and who manage the doctor’s billing and other administrative duties.
The team includes a broad range of allied health professionals, making the patient referral process easier than ever. Lifelong Healthcare recognises the integral value of communication and the way it improves patient outcomes and doctor satisfaction.
Lifelong Healthcare Aged Care Services has developed an online education program covering the fundamentals of the delivery of aged care services. Written by doctors for doctors, this is an invaluable tool in how to practically apply the principles of medical training in the real world of aged care medicine. This comprehensive course is made available to all our doctors free of charge, and will contribute to training hours if required.
In line with Lifelong Healthcare’s commitment to providing the highest quality in healthcare services, doctors are provided with a laptop computer which uses a secure, cloud-based system to manage appointments, referrals, prescriptions and patient information. Doctors use this during their visits to aged care facilities, which streamlines processes and improves efficiency.
