At Prescript we’re known for helping solve the regional doctor shortage in Australia.
Every day we’re focused on two clear outcomes - Helping hospitals find doctors that create departments and clinics that run better, have more capacity and less stress. And placing Doctors in jobs that leave them feeling highly valued, rewarded and, most importantly, enjoying what they do.
We believe that when we get these two crucial things right, it has a huge impact on the regional doctor shortage and the healthcare of communities across Australia.
You might be surprised to learn that doctor shortages exist much closer to home, not just in rural and remote communities. For example, just beyond our capital cities, there are chronic staffing issues where hospitals rely on locum doctors to keep their services running. We're not just dealing with an issue that affects those living outside of our main cities - it's a problem for all of us, all around Australia.
There are three main reasons why hospitals and doctors struggle to solve this problem on their own:
- They don’t have the time to add finding a new job or recruiting to a vacant position to their daily to-do lists.
- They struggle to identify the best position or to attract the best applicants.
- They know that promoting themselves or promoting a vacancy to be engaging and stand out from the crowd takes time yet they also want immediate results.
To tackle these problems head-on, we have three solutions:
Firstly, we use Prescript's 7-Step recruitment framework on behalf of the hospital, practice or doctor - putting the job or candidate search to the top of our to-do list and off theirs.
Secondly, Prescript's locum management service can provide a more immediate solution for uncertain or busy times. Maybe you're between jobs and want to keep your options open. Or perhaps you need a high-quality locum doctor to maintain patient care whilst you recruit the best person for the job.
And finally, we offer bespoke retained projects and tailored job searches rather than a "one size fits all" approach.
Prescript believes that every business has the power to change lives by giving back through its everyday activities. Every time we help a doctor with the next step in their career we also contribute towards medical coverage in Odede, Western Kenya. Our big goal is to pay a doctor's salary for an entire year, plus assist with food, clean water and power at the Community Health Centre.
