ODA/ODP & Anaesthetic staff.
Just wondering if there are any ODA/ODP's out there working who could give me some advice on the job front? I am a new fangled UK Anaesthetic Practitioner (Non Medical Anaesthetist) but was an ODP before doing this training, my wife is an Oncology nurse and we are both desperate to get out to OZ.
We are coming to perth and Adelaide in November, these are our 2 chosen states to find work.
Any help from anyone in the OZ health service would really help us both.

I'm An Anaesthetic Nurse Going To Oz In 2008 But I Do Have A Friend Whos An Odp(anaes.) Going To Perth In January. She Got Her Job Through An Agency, Which I Don't Know The Name Of Off Hand But I Will Find Out For You.
I Have To Admit I Haven't Come Across Your Job Before But It Sounds Mint !
Good Luck To You Both!!

I have read an article about the introduction of Anaesthetic Practitioners in Perth and that they will be using the UK model, I thought if I was out there when they introduced it it would stand me in good stead, as I said I don't mind going back to ODAing for a little whilst waiting.
