Start date:
October 2017

 • Three months accommodation provided
 • Emphasis on serving the rural community

We are looking for a permanent or fixed term GP, to work eight sessions a week. The ideal candidate will be confident, cooperative, have a pleasant personality, and be able to relate comfortably to patients and staff. You will ideally have experience in General Practice, however we are happy to supervise the more recently graduated. Opportunity to practice and develop minor surgery if desired.


We are a small rural General practice with approximately 2900 patients serving a large rural sweep of the North Waikato. Each GP sees approximately 25 patients per day.  We run a weekly clinic at the local rest home, a twice weekly outreach clinic to a neighbouring village and a weekly clinic at the local High School. The Health Centre has a visiting Physio, Podiatrist, Midwife, Mental Health Worker and Naturopath. The practice is open for clinics every weekday from 8.30am to 4.30pm (office hours are 8.00am to 5.00pm). We provide out of hours cover for the rest home and Palliative Care patients, but there is no formal out-of-hours requirement.  

We will provide three months accommodation and three months vehicle contribution and do everything we can to help you settle in and enjoy your time.
