A part-time permanent GP position has become available with this friendly and experienced team.  The role has four sessions per week with no on-call. We are looking for a GP who is cheerful, with a happy disposition and enjoys the outdoors. 


This practice has a great team of two GPs, practice manager, practice nurses and receptionist. There are around 2000 registered patients with the GP seeing around 20 to 25 patients per day. This is a PRIME, rural practice with an interesting mix of patients. 

There is a high quality two bedroom accommodation available/negotiable.


Waimate is centrally located on the South Island between Christchurch, Dunedin and Queenstown. Within a three hour drive are lakes and mountains (including Mt Cook, New Zealand’s highest mountain), river and sea fishing, seven ski fields, and Queenstown, the four season alpine lake resort that offers year round action-packed thrills. 

The popular coastal South Canterbury swimming beach of Caroline Bay can be reached within 30 minutes drive from Waimate. There are several walks and mountain bike trails in the area, which reward the walker with native bush and birds and spectacular views, and the town holds numerous local events, such as the South Canterbury Busking Festival and Waimate Strawberry Fare, an annual celebration of local products. 

Waimate is well known for its population of Bennett’s wallabies. These marsupials were introduced from Australia and now live wild in the countryside surrounding the town. The area is also recognised for the White Horse Monument which is a silhouette of a white horse that can be seen on the hills behind the town.
