Business Development International
Luke McLoughlin is our dedicated international Business Development manager with 11 years of experience working with international GPs. He's been assisting UK GPs with their registration applications since 2012 before he moved into this specific role 7 years ago. He has a wealth of experience and looks forward to welcoming more UK GPs to Australia. His favourite part about working with international GPs is seeing them arrive in Australia with a smooth transition into Australian General Practice.
Who is Sonic Healthcare Australia Clinical Services (SCS)?
SCS is Australia's largest medical centre operator and occupational health provider, offering general practice, occupational health and skin cancer medicine opportunities for GPs. Over 2,000 GPs partner with us at more than 200 centres across Australia.
Our general practitioners work with – not for – SCS. GPs manage their own practices as contractors within one of established centres. Our GPs can focus on building their practice while we take care of the rest: practice management, nurse support, finance, marketing, IT solutions and property maintenance. In joining our network, GPs achieve their preferred outcomes clinically, financially and from a lifestyle perspective.
