North West Private Hospital, Brisbane, Qld


North West Private Hospital has an exciting opportunity for Paediatricians wishing to establish a private practice. In addition to providing private general Paediatric services to the local community, the hospital invites Paediatricians to take referrals from Obstetricians and be available on call for neonatal deliveries, both elective and emergency.
