    Townsville hospital

    HI Does anyone work there and can get me a direct email address for someone in HR or recruitment? or can anyone find it on the QLD health website at all, cos I can only find the general expression of interest form Thanks
  3. 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:
  4. 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.
  5. just like to know has anyone had there medicals done at spire hartswood hospital in essex because have been looking on here but cant see anyone that has been there every one has been to manchester which seems to reasonable ,if anyone has been could they let us know how was it there and how much did it all cost thanks tracey :rolleyes:

    The Wesley hospital

    Hi, Anyone got any views on working here. Urology ???????
  8. Currently16 weeks pregnant and living in quinns rocks so had said would go to joondalup hosiptal to have baby just as it is closest and I dont have a clue about the good/bad hospitals in perth. A few friends have been telling me horror stories and to basically not touch joondalup hosp with a barge pole!now dont know what to do! Anyone else had a baby there and had a good experience? Other hospitals people have suggested are king edward and osborne park, tho not sure how easy they would be to get into and a lot further to drive. Any advice would be really appreciated.
  9. Hi We are planning to move to QLD and I have three job offers on the plate. Are there any kind doctors/nurses ( especially mental health ) around who can shed some light on the current working conditions at GOLD COAST HOSPITAL/LOGAN HOSPITAL/ REDLAND HOSPITAL. We would prefer Logan as it is slightly closer to Bribane but would be very helpful to get some further information from people working there. Any kind souls?? Cheers

    frankston hospital

    i was wondering if any nurses/midwives work at frankston hospital? if so is there anyone who can help me aquire the name/number/email of the head of midwifery? or anyone i can get some information from? our 175 visas were granted and we're off to validate them in april 2011. as a student midwife, i would like to take advantage and see if i can secure a couple of observational shifts at the hospital while im there. i have checked their website, but cant seem to find much information. :nah: I have found the number for the maternity dept, however i was wondering if anyone could help with any direct numbers? thanks
  11. OH been ill since March with what docs thought was Ross River Fever. Those symptoms were recently replaced by others such as double vision and awful taste in mouth. He has lost so much weight. Last week he was in a confused state, and last Saturday I couldn't get a response from him and nurse at health centre said to dial triple 0. Ambulance took him to Nambour GH. He has had numerous blood tests, CT scans, MRI brain scan, lumbar puncture, ecco scan, a catheter fitted, and still no diagnosis. He has gone from being one positive happy go lucky person loving his life in Oz and just waiting for the day (30th May) when he has been here two years and can apply for PR (on 475 visa, is a painter). He is mainly in a comatose state now and is to be transferred to Brisbane where they have more specialist equipment. My sister who has just returned to the UK from Spain has quickly got an Australian visitor's visa and would like to book a flight for Tuesday, not a return, but open-ended. Is anyone able to offer any advice as to which would be the best airline and whether open ended is easy to arrange. I'll feel so much better to have my sis here. We don't have any family here. OH family all in South Africa and mine all in UK. His work colleagues have been v supportive and I am so grateful. I lost my confidence driving so have been using public transport which is good, but a lot slower.
  12. hi everyone! we are coming to perth in april and wanted to know if there is any way i can have a look around a hospital to get an idea what its like there? Any help appreciated! Kate:biggrin:

  23. Hi, We are moving to Oz on a 457 visa (still to be processed). I know there is a reciprocal healthcare agreement with the UK but I can't seem to find out if it will cover us for the following... One of our children has previously undergone cancer treatment, she has been in remission for 3 years and is in very good health but still has to have a hospital check-up every 6 months. Will she be able to get these check-ups under medicare or will we have to pay for it, and if so does anyone know how much this is likely to cost? She also gets yearly check-ups at the hospital audiology dept for a hearing impairment, though she doesn't get any treatment for this as it's really just to make sure her condition doesn't deteriorate. Any help or advice would be much appreciated - Cheers
