Brisbane - Location Report

Quintessential Brisbane

Here’s our guide to a day in Brisbane – full of useful information if you are there to locum or stopping over on your way to the coast

Brisbane has 2 million residents, making it the third largest city within Australia and an exciting destination to explore.  Sydney has its harbour, Melbourne its port and Brisbane has its river.  On the north bank of the river is the CBD, with its sky-scraping offices; on the ‘South Bank’ is the artistic centre of Brisbane and famous as the home of the 1988 World Expo.  We’ll show you some of our picks on these two sides of the river, plus other areas nearby like Fortitude Valley and New Farm.

AM

Start your day on the South Bank and have breakfast/brunch at Gauge.  It opened this year and has a reputation for original, quirky dishes.  Gauge has no website, but can be found at 77 Grey Street.  From there head to GOMA (Gallery of Modern Art) and see if you can spot any elephants standing on their heads.  Stop for a coffee in their ground floor café, which has views of the river and city.   Make time to enjoy the parklands on the South Bank and walk along the riverside walkway to see ‘The Wheel of Brisbane’.

MIDDAY

Book a river cruise and see the city from the water – some will even take you to a koala sanctuary!

LATE LUNCH

Back on dry-land in the CBD, walk to Queen Street Mall which is full of shops and a fantastic farmers market (perfect for lunch, but it only operates on a Wednesday).  For those looking for the most stylish shops, a visit to Queen St Plaza is a must.

Brisbane Markets

EARLY EVENING

James Street is in Fortitude Valley.  The hipster heart of Brisbane, full of creative speciality shops including fashion, health & beauty, lifestyle & design.  Wander around and see what gifts you can find to take home.  Hungry?  Try and get into Longtime Restaurant & Bar.  Incredibly busy, but it serves fantastic thai food (the chefs have cooked for the British and Thai royal families!).

NIGHTCAP

Head back to the CBD and have a cocktail in the small and intimate Laneway Bar.  As the name suggests, it is tucked away and not that easy to find!

WHERE TO STAY?

Our top picks are:

Ovolo Inchcolm - “distinctly boutique hotel of impeccable style and clandestine character”.

Spicers Balfour Hotel - “Located in the fashionable suburb of New Farm, Spicers Balfour Hotel is an award-winning boutique hotel just minutes from the Brisbane city centre. Step inside this iconic Queenslander and you'll discover a chic and stylish interior.”



How prepared are you for Application season? Marcia's Top Tips

Our Prescript Quality Standards - PQS (1).png
My extensive experience of medical administration in several hospitals means I have seen first hand how the doctor shortage impacts regional communities. I am committed to helping solve this issue.

Hello – I’m Marcia Beere – Recruitment Partner at Prescript. It’s that time of year again where we start to see health services open the recruitment door for the future intake of 2020.

Applications seem like they are open forever, but in reality, with life getting so busy, before you know it you have until midnight to submit everything that you think is needed. I thought I’d share with you a few helpful hints to try and assist you in the last-minute scurry.

Applications seem like they are open forever, but in reality, with life getting so busy, before you know it you have until midnight to submit everything that you think is needed.
 

Perfect Your Resume

Update your CV - Include important details, such as; the rotations you have completed or are about to complete, research that you are helping to collect data for, teaching sessions that you have presented or provided assistance in presenting. All these things help a panel understand your interests and help them to visualise where you will fit into their department

 

Keep In Touch With Referees

It’s important to keep in contact with your referees. Make sure you have contacted them to alert them you will need their input. It helps if you can give them a rundown on where and why you have placed applications

 
Prescript - 2018 Feb_22679  crop long .jpg
 

Understand The Selection Criteria

It mostly seems unimportant when you are applying for a clinical role, but it is CRITICAL. When the positions are competitive and the volumes so high, the reviewing panel wants to know you have taken the time to review what you are applying for and that there is an interpreted understanding of the role and the tasks.

 

Connect With The Contact Officer

Most positions may not have a contact officer, particularly if they are bulk round applications. However, call the hospital and ask to speak with the JMO Manager or Director of Medical Workforce. Ask about the hospital and the training environment.

Not only do you become more than just a CV and selection criteria, but it will also give you a touch of insight into the culture of that organisation. Are they engaging? Are they willing to share information and show an interest in you? Will there be more opportunities other than this initial 12 months?

 

Be Flexible With Interviews

I get it; it is not always possible to be available at the exact time and date that you are requested for. However, there are few things to consider – you are in pool of a number of other candidates who can be available, constructing a panel of senior clinicians is also very complex and trying to reschedule their time is difficult.

Phone interviews are not the worst thing. Yes, it can be a challenge to strike up a rapport through the phone, but it is possible. Hospitals understand that it is a critically busy time with ongoing interviews around the country, and they will make allowances if they can.

What To Wear

Appearance is important! Dress smart Be clean and tidy. Scrubs are fine if you are mid-shift or coming off/starting a shift (make sure they are clean).  

 

Ask Questions

During your interview, don’t be afraid to ask questions about the unit. How busy does it get? What supervision is there? What are the majority of presentations? What are the teaching opportunities? Are there any research or ongoing audits you can be a part of in the department?

 

Quality Assurance

Hospitals are ever increasing in their demand for better health outcomes, no matter how small. Think of a time that you did something to improve an outcome. Did you research it? Did you organise for the department you were in to complete an audit and gather data?

 

Declining An Offer

If it wasn’t what you were looking for, the sooner you can provide a withdraw notice of a position, the better. Many hours and planning are put into any recruitment cycle and departments rely on knowing where their staffing numbers are up within a reasonable amount of time.

Be Yourself

Last but not least, be yourself, it’s so important to be you! You are your own best advocate.

Locum Diaries | A GP Obstetrician’s Adventures In WA & NT

LINKEDIN FRIENDLY IMAGES - 2019-04-04T103944.644.png
 

I’m Marcia Beere - Recruitment Partner at Prescript Recruitment. I work with hospitals and practices across regional Australia to help them find the doctors they need.

At Prescript, we’re known for helping solve the regional doctor shortage in Australia. We love hearing about what our doctors have been up to while locuming in regional communities across the country.

We recently received some fantastic feedback and photographs from one of our GP Obstetricians about their locum adventures in WA and NT.

“I tell all my colleagues how happy I am with the service you provide, and this morning I realised I had probably not told you!”
— Prescript Doctor Feedback
The work here has been challenging, interesting and sometimes fun, here are some pics of flying out remote this week!
— Prescript Doctor Feedback

The team with Hugo and Stef really makes it easy so thank you. And especially to you (Marcia) for your support! I am very grateful.
— Prescript Doctor Feedback

The Australian regional doctor shortage is a widespread issue which has a significant impact on the healthcare of communities everywhere. Locuming in these locations will make a real difference.

Many Prescript doctors choose to complete several locums in multiple locations, often taking their families with them. We have had doctors in the past travel around the country with their partners and children while they locum in various hospitals and practices. It’s a fantastic opportunity to explore some of Australia’s beautiful locations and spend quality time with your family while being able to maintain your clinical career.

So ask yourself, doctors, are you up for an adventure? Are you looking to earn a higher daily rate while exploring the country with your family? Would you like to assist regional communities in Australia? If so, we’d absolutely love to hear from you to explore locum options for you - tailored to suit your individual needs and preferences.

Business For Good | Giving Goal Update I April 2019

LINKEDIN FRIENDLY IMAGES - 2019-04-18T120628.802.png

Hello!

I have some exciting news to share! It has been a busy start to the year here at Prescript Recruitment…

As some of you know, part of my role is to manage our partnership with the Global Giving Business initiative, Buy1Give1.

Last year, in 2018, we reached our amazing goal of paying for a doctor’s salary in Western Kenya for an entire year. For 2019, we wanted to think bigger!

Our Impact 2019. What’s Next?

Through 2019 and beyond, our BIG goal is to provide 10,000 days of Medical Care to children in the slums of India.

To date, we have provided: 1,162 days!

This could not have been made possible without all of your support. By working and engaging with Prescript over the past few months, you have directly impacted Prescript’s Giving Goal and provided medical care to children living in desperate poverty – Thank You.

On a personal level, this is incredibly important to me, and I look forward to seeing our contributions grow over the coming months.

To follow our progress, click below to take a look at our Impact page.

It’s More Than Just Business

At Prescript, our focus is to ensure that Australian rural and regional communities have access to the healthcare that they deserve. This motivates me on a day to day basis, and through our involvement with B1G1, we do this on a global level too. Here is some more information on the projects we are supporting with your help.

The provision of medical check-ups and appointments to children living in slums helps to reduce the mortality rate. Millions of children live in terrible conditions and are dying of diseases such as diarrhoea, malaria and rabies which are caused by poor sanitation and overcrowding.

Shikshan Gram Shelter for Homeless Children provides basic living needs and education for over 100 orphaned and homeless Indian children. Through the donations and service paid by volunteers they give hope to the kids, sending them to school and improving their living standards.

The following organisations will be delivering the medical check-ups:

  • Shikshan Gram (shelter for homeless village children)

  • Helping Hands in Service (for slum children of Geeta Nagar Slums)

  • Arts of Living (for slum children of Dharavi)

  • HSNC Board (for educating slum children in their school for under-resourced children)

  • Dreamz Home (for educating and nurturing homeless street children)

Paperwork, credentialing and travel logistics can sometimes be such a headache! My role is to ease the pain and guide all our doctors through the process. Hopefully the hospitals, clinics and doctors I work with feel they are well supported by me and the Prescript team.

Prescript are medical recruitment specialists.

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.
