The West Coast leads the way when it comes to innovations in rural health delivery in New Zealand. We’re all about supportive working relationships between the practices, hospitals and communities as well as enjoying the unique work relationships that stem from the diverse GP network on the West Coast.

If you feel that you and your family could benefit from a less frantic, urban existence then consider a change to a rural coastal community. Trade in your 'same old, same old' for a lifestyle where challenging, varied and engaging work is balanced with an array of outdoor activities such as hiking, kayaking, mountain biking, skiing and fishing. Short flights and scenic drives will get you to Christchurch, Wellington or further afield to Wanaka and Queenstown.

You will be prioritising patient care, conducting clinical sessions and participating in a light on-call roster which is shared amongst the doctors within your practice. While we are most definitely a team, your confidence and skill as an independent, decisive decision maker will be vital in this position.

Whether you are looking for a permanent position or a long-term locum, we can offer flexible working arrangements that fit in with your lifestyle. For those who can commit to 12 months or more we offer very attractive relocation package to assist with your move and settlement to the area. If you are a GP who is considering a change for the good of your family and your career, we can offer you a variety of unique opportunities in various locations.

Only candidates who are eligible for registration to practice in New Zealand can be considered, so please check your eligibility with the Medical Council of New Zealand.
