Every day the team at Prescript help doctors take the next step in their career and assist regional hospitals and practices across Australia with their long-term (permanent) and short-term (locum) vacancies.
I’ve chosen Australia as my home and I’ve loved getting to know different places - from small towns to larger cities - and exploring the challenges that their health services face. Over the past decade I’ve helped hundreds of doctors relocate from interstate or abroad to help regional Australia move towards being fully staffed with doctors.
The struggles that remote communities face in receiving consistent high-quality healthcare are widely talked about. I’ve travelled to the NT and seen for myself the remote Aboriginal communities that lack healthcare provision. What might surprise you though is that the problem is also much closer to home. Even a short distance outside of our capital cities, the doctor shortage is very real. The point is that this is not just an issue just for those living outside of Sydney or Melbourne, it’s a problem for all of us when we travel across Australia to enjoy regional holidays or visit family and friends.
From countless meetings with doctors, hospitals and practices over the last 12 years we understand that they have three key challenges:
✖️ They don’t have the time to add finding a new position or recruiting to their daily tasks.
✖️ They struggle to identify the best position or attract the best applicants.
✖️ They know that promoting themselves or a vacancy so that it is engaging and relevant takes time yet they want immediate results.
We offer a range of recruitment services that will solve these challenges:
➕ Firstly, Prescript’s 7-Step recruitment framework on behalf of doctors, hospitals and practices for permanent positions – putting recruitment on the top of our list and off theirs.
➕ Secondly, Prescript’s locum management service – providing immediate support for uncertain or busy times.
➕ Thirdly, bespoke retained or exclusive recruitment searches and projects.
We believe that regional Australian hospitals and practices should be fully staffed with doctors so that communities everywhere have the healthcare they deserve. Everything we do is with that in mind. We are committed to helping solve the problem of attracting doctors and get an immense amount of satisfaction from seeing the end result - departments and clinics that run better, have more capacity, improved morale and less stress. We also strive to place doctors where they’ll feel valued and really enjoy what they do.
At Prescript, we want to make sure our values flow through everything we do. That’s one reason why every year we set a giving goal through our partnership with the Global Giving Business initiative, B1G1.
Through 2019, our goal is to provide 10,000 days of Medical Care to children in the slums of India. Diseases such as diarrhoea, malaria and rabies are rife. The provision of medical services helps to reduce the mortality rate and allow children to thrive under extreme conditions.
Each quarter in 2019 we link our services to providing 2,500 days of medical support for these kids.
You’re part of making it happen by using Prescript.
