    Canberra hospital and surrounding area

    Hi all We have recently found out that there maybe a job opportunity for us early next year working at Canberra hospital. I was wondering if there are any fellow PIO's that work there or have experience of the hospital and can give us any information as we make our decision, whilst doing our sums! The same also goes for housing and childcare in the surrounding area as we have a toddler and will be looking for some kind of daycare. Thanks Kate

    Do we have to die in hospital

    I have thought about this a lot recently and just wondered when your time comes would you want to be in a hospital ward maybe alone or at home with your family. Personally I want to be with my family at home, is this being selfish?
  10. Hi all, I am a paediatric nurse, and looking at emigrating to Adelaide. However, I keep on looking at the Mater hospital in Brisbane which is very tempting as they offer a relocation package. Does anyone have any advice about the Mater hospital, anyone who works there and what it is like as it is private and I have only worked in NHS hospitals. Thanks
  11. We've been offered a job at Cabrini Hospital Malvern and are looking at areas to live within commuting distance. If possible we'd like the commute via Public Transport so we can manage with just one car. In terms of location we have two children (12 & 7) so are looking for family friendly area with decent schools. Initially only one of us will be working so we're looking at rents up to about $550 Can anyone suggest suitable areas for us to look at in more detail?

  13. Hi, Is there anybody who has worked or is currently working as a Nurse in any of these hospitals who can shed some light on what it is like to work there. My wife has been offered a job in both hospitals and we can't decide on which one to accept. Both offer roughly the same salary so our decision would be based on working conditions/environment and future prospetcs. Any advice or information would be greatly appreciated. t4top
  14. Hello, I am in need of some help from people that work in Hospitals throughout Australia. I am looking to move to Australia in the next few years and i am looking into jobs over there but i have such an unusual job it is so hard. In the UK i am a mortuary technician but in Australia i would look to be a post mortem assistant. I have found 2 adverts for roles in this area but they are both years old and i cant even find info on mortuaries. I know that in Hospitals they are called either Department or Institutes of Forensic Medicine. I was wondering if there was anyone out there that was working within a hospital that could get a contact name and number, or email address. I have a couple but they are from the job adverts so i have no idea if they are still there and active. Even finding out the job code for a visa has been a bit of a nighmare!! Any help would be great, Michelle

    Best Hospital

    Hi, Can anyone please advise the best hospital to visit for my partners broken foot? We are in the CBD in sydney till wednesday then in Bondi? The hospital in the UK fitted an aircast for travel (as it happened 2 days before we were flying), and a fixed cast may/may not be needed - its a metatarsal break. Also I assume we can get the treatment if we take our UK passport? Medicare cards will be applied for tomorrow. Hoping someone can assist. Many Thanks Tracy

    Commute to Mater Womens Hospital

    I have just been offered a Midwifery post at the Mater Women and Childrens Hospital and have been given a start date of Feb 1st! :biggrin: I will be coming to Brisbane on a 457 visa with my husband and youngest daughter (12 yrs old). I'm not sure where to start looking for property and schools but although I don't mind a short commute i don't want to travel too much. Which areas do you suggest I start looking, can't wait to get there.. Lisa

  23. Finally after 6 months - I got my AHPRA nurse registration. Today. Also today I have been given a time for a telephone interview (tomorrow 1pm) for a job in ortho at the knox private hospital. :biggrin: Anyone have any advice? or it would just be nice to get some feedback from anyone who works or has worked there? Thanks in advance.
  24. Hi All I'm new to PIO and have just introduced myself on the welcome page., so this is officially my second post. In short we have been talking about a move to Oz since 1997 when we lived in Melbourne briefly. We always talked about going back to VIC because we loved it but as we have started the discussions again we seem to be moving away from VIC and looking more a QLD. This is in response to reviewing so many positive posts about the QLD coast and areas. I'm a nurse and my OH is a doctor. We have three children, boy 8yrs, girl 7yrs boy 6mths. In short we had stopped talking about a move after our first born but the changing economic climate in the NHS combined with my maternity leave (idle hands) has refocused us a little. We would be looking at a employer sponsored visa if OH secured a post. We are keen to get him the right job and so have been looking at hospital profiles in and around the Brissie/gold and sunshine area. We noted that Namboura General is a good size (for Oz), and wondered if anyone has any feedback on the hospital and it's services as either a patient or employee? I note its a public hospital and it seems from alot of the threads that many of the hospital workers seem to favour public to private healthcare to work in (though that's just a general observation of the discussions and it seems to be a debateable issue). Any comments, feedback would be greatfully received. Cheers :biggrin:
  25. Hi folks, hoping someone could answer a quick question for me. We have booked our medicals for the 10th of March in Dublin. Online applicants so we can go the eHealth route ok, but the clinic mentioned that we must bring our referral letter??? We don't have a referral letter and when I phoned the clinic they didn't seem to know where we could get it from! Anyone know how to go about obtaining a referral letter for medicals? Thanks in advance, David.
