Long Term
Start date:
As soon as possible- flexible

 • Nice rural town
 • New purpose built premises
 • Where the mountain meets the sea and home of world-famous surf


We are seeking a general practitioner to work for a six month period. You will be working eight to ten sessions per week with no on-call. The successful candidate would have experience in rural practice, be a team player, able to handle a fast paced environment, and have enthusiasm with plenty of energy.

The clinic moved into a new purpose built community centre in April 2015. The centre provides a variety of general and family practice services to approximately 3000 enrolled patients, with an average of 25 patients seen per day. The clinic’s opening hours are 8.30am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday. You will also need to work in the neighbouring clinic in Oakura as required. 


A competitive remuneration package is offered and travel, accommodation and Medical Council fees negotiable.


Situated on the coast, Opunake is half way between New Plymouth and Hawera. The mountain really does meet the sea with the mighty Mount Taranaki on one side and the roaring ocean on the other.  The welcome sign of the town proclaims it as “home of world-famous surf” and it lies on a surf highway route which is a firm favourite with wave-chasers.  Its caf├ęs, colourful murals, shopping centres and the friendly nature of the people make Opunake a great place to discover - you’ll feel right at home.
