Doctors work alongside Registered Nurses, Midwives and Aboriginal Health Workers.  A number of medical specialists regularly visit our centre, including a dentist. Bega holds an S100 Licence which allows us to dispense medications to our clients free of charge from our on-site pharmacy.  Child care facilities are available at our creche free of charge for clients and for a small fee for staff.

Bega now has a mobile clinic van which will be delivering a variety of health services to towns and communities throughout the region.  Registrars will have the opportunity to work in the mobile clinic.

As well as participating in training programs for GP Registrars, Bega also hosts undergraduate medical students from the University of WA and Notre Dame University, students nurses and Aboriginal Health Worker trainees.  The clinic employs around 40 staff while Bega as a whole employs around 130 staff throughout the organisation.

Rotational on call services provided by our doctors to Kalgoorlie Regional Hospital are paid for directly to the doctor on call by WA Country Health and is in addition to remuneration from Bega.  Bega offers Registrars paid annual leave, study leave and generous salary packaging options.
