TELL US ABOUT THE SETUP OF THE HOSPITAL AND SUPPORT FOR A LOCUM DOCTOR IN Bega?
The team at Bega South East Regional Hospital is super easy to settle in. The Medical Admin gives a good tour of the department. One of the CMO’s showed me where things were. You can just ask, everyone is really friendly, supportive and keen to help you out.
WHAT DOES THE TRAVEL AND ACCOMMODATION LOOK LIKE?
Travel was super easy. Quick flight time from Sydney to Merimbula. Beautiful drive from the airport. The car was ready for me as soon as I arrived. I had an ensuite room in the shared house and no one was there for the week. Really clean, nice house, good amenities. Close to the hospital and 10 mins from the beach.
TOWN AMENITIES? SHOPS, COFFEE TIPS?
Red cafe has amazing vegetarian food and chai.
The Tathra beach side is so beautiful – I need to go for a swim next time.
WOULD YOU GO BACK TO Bega AS A LOCUM DOCTOR?
Yes because the beach is beautiful and close by, hospital staff are friendly and even though a few days were late ones, overall I don’t feel overworked or overwhelmed. Good accommodation. Not difficult to get to.
