General Practitioner Wairoa, Hawkes Bay view map

Start date:
15 January 2018

 • Friendly, competent and well-organised GP
 • House and car provided
 • Hot summer beaches



We are seeking a friendly, competent and well-organised permanent General Practitioner. This role has nine to ten sessions per week with on-call of 1:6.

The GP needs a can-do personality and likes to work in a practice that is busy and well organised. You will be a team player with good communication skills who likes to work with staff who are helpful and competent. The GP provides emergency care, but the very sick/injured are flown out straight to the base hospital. 

The practice has a cheerful and relaxed atmosphere and is staffed by two other General Practitioners, four Nurses, and a Social Worker. There are approximately 3000 enrolled patients with an average of 24 patients per day (per GP). The patient demographic is mainly Maori 74%, so if you are prepared to learn a new culture then this is the perfect role for you. The practice is in the Cornerstone accreditation programme. 


The practice will contribute to your travel, relocation and immigration costs. A house is provided which is fully furnished, insulated and has the lawns/garden taken care of. A vehicle is also provided.

The Medical Council registration and medical indemnity costs are also paid for. The practice allows staff to specialise and upskill in their areas of interest.  


Wairoa lies in the Hawke’s Bay where the Wairoa River meets the Pacific Ocean. It's in a great location for outdoor pursuits including hunting, hiking, surfing and fishing as it is surrounded by breathtakingly beautiful beaches. It’s also in close proximity to Te Urewera National Park and Lake Waikaremoana.  Just an hour’s drive away is the Art Deco city of Napier, where palm trees line the streets and where some of the oldest wineries in the country are located. Similarly, an hour’s trip north you will find the city of Gisborne with pristine and safe swimming beaches. There is lots to enjoy whether it’s white water rafting, canoeing or wilderness experiences!
