Role

A GP position has become available with this friendly and experienced team.  The role has nine sessions per week with after-hours on-call of two nights per week (very minimal call outs). The practice is looking for a GP who is comfortable working solo, but with support of a very competent and experienced nursing and administration team.

Practice

The practice is owned and managed by a community trust, situated in what was previously the local hospital. There are spacious premises, which were extensively renovated in the late 1990s, include a large waiting room, three consulting rooms, and an ambulance room.  In addition to the General Practitioner, there is a practice nurse and two administration support staff and the Practice Manager who assist with the day-to-day administration of the practice and community services.

The practice has approximately 1400 patients, with 20 patients seen each day on average. Surgery hours are 9am – 5pm weekdays.  An on-call nursing team covers the weekends and has telephone backup.  

Location

This town is situated in Otago and has a population of around 600 in the town but also services the surrounding rural area. There are orchards, sheep and beef farms that surround this rural region.  It is a great place to raise a family in a safe and peaceful environment.

Otago has warm summers and cold winters. It is a land of extremes being the coldest and driest part of New Zealand. The seasons are sharply defined: summers are typified by long days (daylight lasts until 10pm) that are hot and low in humidity; autumn sees cooler evenings with hot and calm days shortening as we head into winter; winter mornings are often misty, the days cloudless and windless and the nights freezing; while spring sees a return to warmer weather with typical equinox winds.

Popular tourist towns such as Queenstown and Wanaka are only 90 minutes away, where you can ski, jet-boat and indulge in other outdoor pursuits. Dunedin and Invercargill are within driving distance as well.
