I am now accepting formal applications for the position of General Adult Psychiatrist in the Townsville Hospital and Health Service (THHS).
In the last 18months I have assisted 3 UK trained Consultant Psychiatrists secure a position and transition to this service in Queensland. Currently, we have 2 Psychiatrists on their way and looking forward to relocating in late 2018.

Townsville is a city with 200k people and sits on the beautiful Queensland Tropical Coast. Townsville has arguably one of the finest independent schools in Queensland and also hosts James Cook University with a very good reputation in science and medicine.

The city is perfect for singles, couples or families. Large enough to provide work opportunities for partners (medical or not) Townsville does not have traffic or pollution issues. It is laid back and has a marina and beachside area with many bars, cafes and restaurants. Townsville has more than enough to keep the kids active, outdoors and engaged: beaches, parks, hinterland, surf, sailing, swimming pools, cricket ovals, football pitches etc. and is very family orientated.

The hospital campus is a first class facility with a 36 bed acute mental health unit . Outside of Brisbane, THHS is the most comprehensive mental health service in Queensland and has a exceptional Medical Director with very strong ties to James Cook University. The group is collaborative with a supportive matrix of peer group support with excellent administrative/operational resources. It promotes a Recovery approach with the patient at the centre of its philosophy.

You will be a Consultant General Psychiatrist with
FRANZCP or equivalent in UK, Ireland, Canada or USA.
If not FRANZCP, then a minimum of three years experience at Consultant/Specialist level.
You will have completed your specialist training in a comparable country of training: UK, Ireland, NZ, Canada or USA.
Have had a formal post in CAMHS/Learning disability during your basic or higher training.
Deep knowledge of contemporary psychiatric practises.
First class communication skills.
Ability to practise within a cross-cultural context.

For more information about Townsville, the service, position description, RANZCP assessment and medical registration process please call me on +44 131 240 5276 or

I am also recruiting a Liaison post, Rehab post and a Rural and Indigenous post for the same service so if you know friends who may be interested please pass my details on or refer them to the website. Thanks! Alasdair
