REMOTE BASED HEALTHCAREThe demands of remote healthcare require an adaptable and flexible approach presenting the opportunity to challenge yourself and develop knowledge and skills.
Remote communities are likely to be spread across vast rural landscapes or several islands which means delivery of healthcare services presents challenges. The aim, when providing remote healthcare is to deliver services which meet the needs of remote communities, ensuring patients have access to adequate levels of care when needed. Large rural general hospitals, small community hospitals and GP practices will often work in partnership to each play an integral part in providing healthcare services.
Small community hospitals or GP practices will often be the nearest care provider and the first stop for a range of clinical conditions and at times major emergencies taking on responsibilities normally handled by a local hospital. Out of hours and emergency care cover requires doctors with an experienced medical background, high level of clinical experience and willingness to face new challenges.
