East Grampians Health Service (EGHS) is developing a new obstetric model of care in which a General Practitioner Obstetrician (GPO) will be regularly rostered to provide obstetric services for a 2-week period, followed by a set period of time in which they are free to pursue other interests or employment opportunities. The set period between being rostered to provide services will depend on the number of GPO’s participating in the model.
EGHS has level 3 birthing capability, level 2 neonatal capability and delivers approximately 120 babies per year, including elective and emergency caesarean sections, supported by our local GP obstetricians and GP Anaesthetists support. We also work with Ballarat Community Health to support and provide women’s health and sexual health choices and management.
EGHS‘s Urgent Care Centre supports approximately 5000 presentations per year, also supported by our local GP’s, as well as Rural Generalist HMO’s and registrars. As the fund holder for the Grampians region, EGHS is a strong supporter of the Victorian Rural Generalist Program and consolidation of advanced skills within this program.
EGHS is keen to support the maintenance of obstetric skills for GP obstetricians, and believes that regular, rostered obstetric work as a priority caseload, with the opportunity to engage in GP or UCC practice as time and preference permits, provides an alternative option for GP obstetricians who currently fit their obstetric caseload around other commitments.
Appointment is subject to immunisation clearance (Including COVID-19) and current and satisfactory Employment Checks (Police and Working With Children Checks)
