NSW Rural Doctors Network (RDN) in partnership with Western NSW Local Health District is inviting expressions of interest for a VMO Otolaryngology (ENT) Surgeon(s) which will enhance rural based ENT services and provide a bulk-billed outpatient ENT clinic for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children.

This outreach service would involve the following: 

  • • One visit per month consisting of three days: two surgery days (working on existing waiting lists) and one public bulk-billed ENT clinic at Dubbo Health Service
  • • Host facility is open to a rotation of up to three VMO Otolaryngologists (potentially making this a bi-monthly or quarterly clinic for any one specialist).
  • • Collaborating with other medical practitioners, allied health practitioners and services
  • • This clinic would ideally suit Sydney-based ENT surgeons who are currently credentialled with an LHD; however, specialists from other areas can apply if a viable alternative transport option is available.

Service summary

  • • Provide patient consultations and upskilling of local health professionals
  • • Program support can extend to other members of the team (eg. audiologist or other clinic staff if not available locally), who can be backfilled from their existing role if required.
  • • The visiting ENT will provide follow up care whilst in Dubbo. Upon leaving Dubbo, the local ENT’s will attend to patients thereafter should any post-operative complications arise
  • • Program funds are available to cover the cost of transportation, meals, accommodation and travel time for the health professionals to get to the clinic as well as funding for upskilling of local staff.

The main objectives of the Outreach ENT specialist are to: 

  • • Improve health outcome for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and youth in Western NSW
  • • Improve access to ear and hearing health follow up services for Aboriginal children and youth
  • • Enhance access to bulk-billed ENT consultations identified through the HEBHBL program for Aboriginal children and youth aged 0-21
  • • Provide early detection, treatment and management of otitis media and other ear and hearing conditions upon referral by the primary care physician
