When Dorothea Mackellar wrote those words in 1904 (at age 19) Australia was a very different place, but we can still recognise the landscape and the beauty she referred to – what we at Ochre Health might do is change the last line to “The wide Ochre land for me!” for Ochre Health has truly changed the medical landscape in Australia over the past decade. When the two doctors, Ross Lamplugh and Hamish Meldrum, set Ochre Health up in 2002, they did so with a vision to create a small family-orientated business, selling their own stories of outback family bliss to attract like-minded doctors to Bourke in the far north west of New South Wales. Marketing the sunburnt country and improving healthcare across its very disparate environments became a passion and the company quickly expanded to include rural locations across New South Wales, the Australian Capital Territory and Queensland. Today, having won government contracts to supply general practitioner super clinics to Grafton, Canberra and the Sunshine Coast, Ochre Health can truly state that it has improved healthcare immeasurably in our communities across Australia.
Our doctors benefit from:
- Open and flexible contract arrangements – None of our doctors have fixed terms in their contracts. They choose to stay with Ochre Health because they want to and share our passion for improving health outcomes.
- A commitment to education and training – Our doctors are supported in pursuing their own professional development and we are committed to providing centres of excellence for GP Registrars and medical students keen to start their careers.
- Full clinical autonomy – We believe our doctors should be allowed to practice their way. We provide the best software systems and operational support, that allows them to be the GP they always wanted to be.
- Nursing and Admin Support – We employ highly experienced nurses who assist our doctors with a wide range of medical tasks (Pap smears, CDM, care plans, …). Additionally, our dedicated Support Centre takes care of all other core business services, such as marketing, hiring, training and payroll.
- Mixed Billings – Our doctors have the ability to bill patients as they see fit, this is to allow them to truly focus on patient care.
