About Pioneer Health...

Pioneer Health Albany is a busy, established general practice on the beautiful south coast of WA. We are a friendly and supportive team, with twelve GPs, GP registrars (currently three), six practice nurses and nine part time administrative staff.  We practice from a large, new, purpose-designed building which is co-located with a pathology collection centre, pharmacy and dental service.  Our focus is on providing holistic, best practice health care to our patients in a caring, professional way.

We provide a broad range of services, including all aspects of general practice, minor surgery, paediatrics, antenatal care, preventive medicine and mental health care. Our GPs have admitting rights at the Albany Regional Hospital, and there is the opportunity to provide inpatient care, emergency department cover, anaesthetics and obstetric care. A comment that we often get from our new doctors is that they are surprised by the wider range of presentations they get each day compared to metropolitan practices.

Our practice is committed to teaching, and fosters a learning culture for all team members.  We regularly host GP registrars, who have resoundingly positive learning experiences while with us: in fact, some of them have chosen to stay on a more permanent basis.  We support our registrars in their training. They are involved in our weekly practice and clinical meetings, and offered ‘open door’ access to our experienced GPs for supervision and mentoring. We also host PGPPPs and students throughout the year.

Visit our practice website (link above) to see more about our practice, our location, and our team. If you are interested in a training placement at our practice, please contact our Practice Manager John Galvin (contact details listed above). We can also also provide contact details of our previous registrars so you can discuss directly with them about their experience here.
