About the role

Applications are sought from suitably qualified Haematologist for the position of Fractional Specialist Consultant Haematologist at Grampians Health Ballarat. This position is located within the Ballarat Regional Integrated Cancer Centre (BRICC) and is available to commence in July 2024. This particular post is available as a response to the growth in the haematology service, and specifically establishment of Haematology as a separate specialty unit within Grampians Health.

The successful applicant will be an outstanding clinician, demonstrate an exceptional track record as a haematologist and communicator and provide a high-level knowledge of the haematology service where evidence-based clinical approaches are fundamental to the delivery of services.  

An opportunity also exists for the applicant to consider a fortnightly outreach clinic in Horsham.

The BRICC is located in the Ballarat Base Hospital, the largest regional hospital in the Grampians region. It is the principal referral hospital for the entire region, which extends from Bacchus Marsh on the outskirts of Melbourne to the South Australian border, an area of ~48,000 square kilometres.
The BRICC delivers a multi-modality oncology service - from state-of-the-art radiotherapy and chemotherapy (including outreach), comprehensive allied health and supportive care, research and clinical trials to a vibrant Wellness Centre offering a full suite of complementary therapies.

The haematology service is expanding, currently supported by five staff haematologists. The inpatient team is supported by an Advanced Trainee, BPT registrar and HMO. The service is well supported by the medical oncology team which currently comprises 5 full time and 5 visiting medical oncologists. The medical oncology training program includes two advanced trainee oncology registrars, a clinical oncology Fellow, as well as basic trainee medical registrars and medical residents.

We work closely with the Radiation Oncology Unit (BAROC), Palliative Care (outstanding inpatient palliative care facility "Gandarra"), haematology inpatient services (ward 4 south) and the onsite satellite pharmacy.  The oncology unit supports 3 outreach consultation and treatment services at Stawell, Horsham and Maryborough with referrals from these services for haematological conditions.  

This role is suited to a clinical haematologist wishing to contribute to a growing and vibrant service and an aspirational professional driven by career, community and contribution. An attractive remuneration package is attached to this role.
