Dumbleyung Health Hub – SEEKING HEALTH PROFESSIONALS
The Shire of Dumbleyung is seeking expressions of interest for a Dumbleyung Health Hub concept. There are many health professionals this could be of interest to so feel free to tag and share with:
**Remedial Massage Therapists, Chiropractors, Acupuncturists, Dietitians, Exercise physiologists, Myotherapists, Naturopaths, Occupational Therapists, Osteopaths, Physiotherapists, Podiatrists, Psychologists, Speech Pathologists and more!**
The concept will be a modern approach to a local health hub which will also act as a small business incubator. This allows these businesses to experiment and learn with minimal risk, gaining confidence to develop their business into the future. We would hope to attract services that can be claimed through private health funds and would hope to establish the HICAPS facility for processing on the spot claims.
AFFORDABLE & LOW RISK
• $50 per week for each professional to hire the vacant shop space on Absolon Street inclusive of water and electricity costs! *Minimum of three health professionals required.
• Sharing the time & flexible hours – We hope to see the Health Hub open a minimum of five days per week, this could work as a roster system while each service builds up their clientele. There is also the option for after hours and weekend opening hours.
• Private consulting spaces - Pending commitment from three professionals we will progress with installing the first sealed private consulting room within the space which will create two consulting spaces and a waiting area.
Are you a health professional and always wanted to have your own space but are short on money and time? The Dumbleyung Health Hub could be a great opportunity!
Interested? All we need to know is what service you can provide. Contact Nicole at the shire on 9863 4012 email@example.com
DO YOU NEED DAY CARE FOR YOUR CHILD?
Following the recent Day Care survey, we have identified the need for additional Day Care days and will have more available placements very soon! Starting now we also have relief/back-up Educators for school holidays and to cover sick days to ensure our Educators have additional support to allow continuous service. **Please share with anyone you believe may be interested in either permanent or casual placements. Contact the shire for further information on 9863 4012 firstname.lastname@example.org
