New doctors have finally been announced for Deniliquin, after a long and severe shortage.December 11, 2012 4:59am
A new doctor and GP registrar will start work in Deniliquin early next year.
Ochre Health, which manages the Deniliquin Medical Centre, confirmed a new GP will start at the facility in January.
The doctor will be the first to relocate to Deniliquin due to the new medical centre, which was opened in October.
Ochre general manager Maureen Thornhill could not give any further detail on the new practitioner.
A female registrar will also be joining Dr Ian Dumbrell at Deniliquin Central Clinic in early February.
The clinic said the registrar would be a post-graduate trainee GP from Beyond Medical Education, and will be employed part-time.
She will also have a supervised role on the Deniliquin Hospital roster.
It is hoped the Ochre Health GP will also join the on-call roster at Deniliquin Hospital.
Ochre has previously indicated it intends for its new doctors to also benefit the hospital.
During Deniliquin’s doctor shortage there have been reports of Deniliquin Hospital being left without an on-call doctor at times.
The two new additions will bring the number of medical practicioners in Deniliquin to 10.
Ochre Health plans to bring three or four new doctors to town over two years, with a second new doctor expected in six to 12 months.
The centre is also expected to attract visiting specialists to Deniliquin.
On its website, Ochre is still advertising for a doctor, practice nurse, physiotherapist, podiatrist and clinical psychologist for Deniliquin.
