How we differ and what that means to you

Born from a background in executive health management, we are passionate about and committed to improving the healthcare workforce in rural and regional areas. We understand the operational, clinical, and governance complexities that come with managing a hospital or practice.  

We actively:

  • Develop relationships that last the distance - we are with you for the long-term;
  • Find you suitable pay and accommodation;
  • Influence key stakeholders and guarantee sustainable and fair rosters;
  • Specialise in general practice, rural generalism, and emergency medicine;
  • Respect the clinical expertise of our doctors;
  • Provide innovative and lifestyle-approved employment solutions for our doctors.

We are doctor-owned and managed and are part of the iconic Ochre Health Group which operates a growing medical practice network across Australia.

Join us and be part of the conversations and solutions on the ground.

Our Purpose

Our fundamental purpose is twofold. 

  •  Enable doctors to focus on their clinical work while we find them the ideal role; 
  •  Create bespoke models of care for hospitals and the communities they serve.

We are proud to have re-invented a more sustainable pathway to achieving a healthier work/life balance, rewarding career, and inclusive workplace culture.

We are a friendly team of professionals with many years of experience in health service operations and medical recruitment. 

We adopt a ‘hands-on’ personal approach ensuring we match our doctors with the appropriate vacancies, recognising individual needs. This often results in rewarding longer-term arrangements. 

On July 1, 2022, Medical Directions Australia merged with The Ochre Group and became known as Medical Directions, A Division of The Ochre Group.

The Ochre Group was founded by two proceduralist GPs in the NSW outback town of Bourke over 20 years ago and it has developed a strong reputation for delivering quality healthcare services across Australia, particularly into rural and regional communities. To date, it has been made up of two companies – Ochre Recruitment and Ochre Health.

Specialising in recruiting locum doctors, Ochre Recruitment has long been a trusted partner of private and public health facilities across Australia and NZ.

Sister company, Ochre Health, operates a network of over 60 medical centres in partnership with over 400 doctors, as well as holding state government contracts to run hospital emergency departments in numerous rural towns.
