Experienced Speech Pathologist required a community service in the Northern Territory. You will join a team of 8 allied health clinicians and cover the following caseload:

  • Mostly paediatric communication cases, outpatients in the clinic and outreach to remote communities. The region is quite diverse in its population with high migrant population and high proportion of Aboriginal people. They work on a transdisciplinary model so generally two disciplines work together and travel together (eg SP and OT, OT and PT etc). Some adults but prioritising paeds. There is a paediatric inpatients and paediatric feeding/swallowing outpatient service however, this caseload is negotiable and not essential to the locum role
  • The role involves occasional travelling to remote communities in the Big Rivers region by 4WD or light aircraft, staying overnight during weekdays. This is for locums of six weeks in duration or longer. Shorter term locums won’t travel to the communities.
  • Join a team of 2 OTs, 1 Physio, 1 Social worker, 2 Public Health Dietitians, 1 Allied Health Assistant, 1 Team Leader

  • Flights reimbursed and free accommodation for locums.

Locum rates of $60-$75 per hour super (depending on experience). Great feedback from my current locum!

Come to where the Outback meets the tropics and discover a region full of gorges and misty waterfalls, thermal springs and ancient cultures. This region is a nature lovers paradise.
