Where you’ll be working

Southern NSW Local Health District (SNSWLHD)covers a large area of New South Wales, from Goulburn and Crookwell to the Victorian border and surrounds the ACT on three sides.  It extends from the pristine beaches of the NSW South Coast, the farmlands of the Southern Tablelands, across the picturesque Great Dividing Range and the spectacular Snowy Mountains.

SNSWLHD provides health services for about 200,000 residents and balloons seasonally with an influx of more than 5 million tourists each year.  They are attracted to the region’s snowfields and pristine coastal areas. Visitors account for between 13% and 17% of all emergency department presentations each year.

SNSWLHD is home to four large Aboriginal nations – the Gundungurra, Ngunnawal, Ngarigo and Yuin. In the 2011 about 3.5% of residents identified as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander.

SNSWLHD employs over 3000 people across more than 20 sites making it one of the region’s largest employers with the majority of staff local to the communities they serve. Doctors, nurses and allied health professionals account for about 70 per cent of the workforce. SNSWLHD has 14 public inpatient facilities comprising 11 hospitals and three multi-purpose services. The multi-purpose services (MPS) combine a range of health and aged care tailored to meet each community’s unique clinical needs and provide emergency and basic care.

The Eurobodalla Health Service is located in the Yuin Nation on the beautiful south coast of NSW and is a networked service spread over three campuses, with Moruya and Batemans Bay Hospitals co-located with community health, and a standalone community health centre in Narooma.
