Tweed's search for new doctors

TWEED Hospital has begun an annual recruitment drive for three junior doctors to meet the community's growing needs.

The employment drive is a New South Wales Government initiative.

It will spend $42 million over four years to employ 3000 Junior Medical Officers (JMOs) throughout the state in their second and third year of training.

Positions are currently being advertised nationally and overseas.

Duty Member of the Legislative Council for Tweed Amanda Fazio welcomed the initiative.

“This recruitment drive will expand the medical workforce to ensure Tweed Heads has a sufficient number of specialists to meet the needs of the community,” Ms Fazio said.

“It will also expand the opportunities for specialists to train in Tweed Heads, which research indicates is a significant factor in retaining doctors in such areas.

Applications opened July 16 and close August 17.
