The NSW Health Department supports two Overseas Recruitment Programs to assist in recruiting Radiation Oncology Medical Physicists (ROMPs) and Radiation Therapists.
New South Wales (NSW) Health System
NSW Health provides public sector health services and is made up of eight Area Health Services. These Health Services provide a comprehensive range of health and health related services through a mixture of inpatient, outpatient and community based services covering health protection, health promotion and education, health screening, diagnosis, treatment, transport, acute care, rehabilitation, continuing care for chronic illness, counselling, support and palliative care. These Services are provided in a wide range of settings from primary care outposts in the remote outback to metropolitan based tertiary health centres. Additionally, a range of people and organisations provide these services, including general practitioners and other clinicians, Public Sector Health Services, non-government organisations, private hospitals and day surgeries, a wide range of health practitioners in private practice, aged care hostels and nursing homes.
NSW Radiation Oncology Services
Radiation oncology services in NSW are mainly provided by the public health system. As at the beginning of 2009, there are 18 Radiation Oncology Treatment Centres (ROTCs), with 13 public and five private Centres in NSW (St Vincent's Hospital provides both public and private radiation oncology services), with the centres maintaining strong university links. Information on the location and summary of each public ROTC is outlined on the NSW Health website. Approximately 80% of all radiotherapy courses are provided in the public sector, including care for the most complex of cancer cases. NSW ROTCs are located in six Area Health Services.
New radiotherapy services are planned for the central west of the state (based at Orange), and for the upper north coast, with an Integrated Cancer Care Centre also to be built at Lismore Base Hospital.
NSW Health Department welcomes potential international candidates to work in the public ROTCs in NSW as part of this Overseas Recruitment Program. If you wish to experience the lifestyle opportunities offered by NSW, please contact us for further details on recruitment possibilities.
We look forward to working with you in the future.
