Careers

Would you like to join Family Health Care Mackay Marian?

Family Health Care Mackay Marian, is a mixed billing practice located in the southern region of Mackay.

Situated approximately 24 kilometres west of Mackay city, Marian is bordered by the south bank of the Pioneer River. It is a picturesque town surrounded by farmland, mostly sugar cane, serviced by a network of rail lines leading to the Marian Sugar Mill. This sugar mill is one of the largest in Australia, where over 2 million tonnes of sugar is crushed every year.

Marian has a population of approximately 3,000 people, who join 120,000 other permanent residents of Mackay. The Mackay-Whitsunday Region is well-known for its relaxed “country meets coast” lifestyle, sugar cane fields, and friendly, down-to-earth locals.

Opportunities for GPs

Family Health Care Mackay Marian is part of the Better Medical Group; a doctor-led owner and operator of high-quality general practices across Australia.

We proudly offer high-quality management services and facilities for doctors and passionately believe that primary care needs to be locally focused. That is why our group of practices are locally managed, regionally connected, and centrally supported. Our ethos is simple – to support doctors to provide high-quality care to their patients and local communities.

We support some of Australia’s best GPs, and we pride ourselves on:

  • Ensuring the right cultural fit for both the GP and the practice;
  • Centralised expertise, including IT, marketing, human resources, and payroll;
  • The delivery of excellence in clinical care, underpinned by clinician support of our Clinical Advisory Board;
  • Great earning potential for doctors with competitive market rates;
  • Enabling doctors to manage and maintain flexible working schedules and promoting independence;
  • Providing opportunities for professional development, including the development of specialist skills;
  • Our commitment to technological innovation in primary care; and
  • Focussing on our people to make sure we’re looking after them.

Opportunities for Nurses, Allied Health & Admin

High-quality primary health care cannot be delivered without the crucial input and dedication of nurses, allied health professionals, and administration staff.

Therefore, we ensure people in every level and every role have the opportunity for personal and professional success.

For example, we strongly encourage staff to look for opportunities. We back people to deliver new initiatives and reward them for their success. We believe in structured, professional development and always look to promote from within.
