Your opportunity
The Speech Pathologist – Senior is a senior allied health professional and who uses high-level clinical skills and expertise, to provide evidenced base coordinated care across the broad continuum of health care, spanning paediatric (neo-natal to preschool age) and adult patients (including acute care and rehabilitation).
You will work as part of a multidisciplinary team (with other Queensland Health, government and non-government service providers) in the case management of clients to deliver high quality therapy, across the continuum of care, from local and outreach inpatient to outpatient and community-based service delivery, linking to metropolitan clinical services and utilising flexible innovative models of care to adapt to cultural and geographical barriers and limited community-based support.
The very nature of what we do and who we are is the real opportunity. Providing health care support in the bush is full of challenges, however, it remains the most rewarding of human experiences.

St George Hospital is a 31 bed facility located 513kms west of Brisbane, servicing a population of approximately 2,400. Whether you are after a tree change, or a pace change, you will quickly become part of the community you care for in St George.
