Modern clinic
Relaxed coastal lifestyle

This practice is seeking a permanent General Practitioner. You will be working eight to ten sessions per week with on-call one weeknight per fortnight, and just four to five weekends per year. You will have the opportunity to work in a small outreach clinic 2-3 times per week where you will treat high needs patients with complex medical issues. The ideal candidate will be flexible, understanding and accepting of different cultures. The practice will assist with registration fees, with relocation and accommodation assistance negotiable.

This small team is based in coastal Whakatane, in the stunning Bay of Plenty. You will be supported by three GPs, three nurses, a practice manager and an administrative team. GPs see approximately 20-25 patients per day.

Whakatane is situated next to the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean, which is world-famous for deep sea fishing and water sports. The Bay of Plenty has over 50km of coastline and numerous major rivers, and is in close driving distance to Te Urewera National Park. This native forest is home to a variety of unique flora and fauna. Summer temperatures range between 25 C and 28 C, and winter seldom falls below 11 C! The city of Tauranga is only an hour’s drive northwest.
