Not only does Armidale provide great health options there are also excellent Private and Public Schools, a well respected University, and a thriving sporting and artistic Community.

The surrounding areas offer a range of national parks, waterfalls, nature reserves and lookouts, getting away for a family day out is made easy.

Why Faulkner Street Medical Practice?
Our practice has been in its current location for more than fifty years.
Fully computerised and paperless since 1998, accredited from day one, we are early technology adopters, innovative and here to stay.
The practice has achieved and maintained a high reputation and looks after the medical needs of a large percentage of the local Pharmacists, Dentists, Hospital Doctors, University lecturers, Scientists and other professionals.
The practice prides itself to provide high value services on a good timeline.
Co-operation and IT documentation allow patients in need to be seen on the day if not by “their usual” doctor then by a colleague who will refer to the previous notes and proceed in the spirit of continuity.
A strong educational commitment has seen large numbers of undergraduate as well as postgraduates pass through the practice for training.
Involvement in education inside the practice as well as with the university or hospital is supported.
Professional development and driving forward of internal and external standards is encouraged.
Our policy of not accepting any demeaning behaviour to any medical or non medical staff means we will not tolerate this behaviour from anyone. We wish to remain a place where all employees like to come to work and be appreciated, feel safe and supported.
With a very professional set up we offer future colleagues careers on part time and full time basis as well as the option to join later as Associates in a healthy business. Support with accommodation, school enquiries and cutting through “red Tape” is possible. The practice size with a 1/6 Saturday morning roster makes for acceptable work life balance.
If this sound like a place to work and live a life less hectic, bring up the kids or offer great professional options give us a call.
