This role is suitable for a PGY4+ doctor with basic ALS skills and ability to sort a busy waiting room out. While not primarily supervising JMOs, your assistance with this is appreciated. There is a JMO on the wards taking care of clinical reviews and for the most part is supervised by the on call specialists and another junior ED based CMO/locum. You will have access to the on call specialists but they will all be on remote call. Typically you would take handover from departing morning staff of any patients who remain in the ED and assist / supervise the junior CMO.

The ED doctors are responsible for MET calls all weekend (from Friday 1630-Monday 0800h) and ward short calls from 1600h onwards on Saturday and Sunday including HDU/CCU/ICU (level 3 ICU). On weekends there are no supervisors/consultants/registrars in the ED/hospital and any consultation is by phone or on a call in basis. The ward based teams typically perform a brief weekend ward round in the mornings. There is no routine radiology on weekends. This role is suitable for a PGY 4+ doctor with ALS skills with greater confidence and experience in emergency department and general medicine. The workload on weekends and availability of assistance is highly variable. At times we may swap your early and late shifts on weekends depending on skill mix and logistics of getting locums in and out of broken hill but will advise as soon as practical of this need Night shift: is from 1945-0815h (2400-0800h solo in whole hospital and senior for duration of shift).
