The RPA Virtual Hospital is seeking expressions of interest from General Practitioners to join their Medical team.

Sydney Local Health District launched RPA Virtual Hospital in February 2020, RPA Virtual has been integral in the Districts COVID-19 response, clinically managing COVID-19 positive patients in the community and those in the Special Health Accommodation quarantine and COVID-19 negative patients in quarantine with complex health needs.

The role of the GP would include:

  • Medical management of COVID positive and/or COVID negative patients
  • Liaising with patients’ usual GP as required
  • Liaising with RPA Virtual Hospital clinicians, Special Health Accommodation clinicians, Public Health Unit and Infectious Disease Unit on the remote management of all patients
  • Appointment will be a salaried FTE fraction
  • Shifts will be available 7 days a week
  • Flexible work hours and the option to work remotely from home offered

GPs will not be expected to perform any duties outside their normal scope of practice.
