 • Great supportive team
 • Popular beach resort and seaside town
 • Stunning Coromandel region


We are seeking a permanent or long term GP for a centrally located, privately owned medical practice in a popular holiday location. You will be working eight sessions per week and 1:3 oncall.  If you are friendly, outgoing, interested in all aspects of rural GP, particularly emergency medicine, and have a good sense of humour then this is the perfect role for you! 

There will be accommodation and vehicle assistance for the first 6 months and relocation assistance is negotiable, if permanent.


This is a very busy rural practice where you will be working alongside a close team with excellent clinical support. The staff includes three other General Practitioners, 6 experienced practice nurses, administration and frontline staff.  The practice holds a PRIME contract and provides its own 24/7 cover.  Two acute clinics run daily at noon and 5.00pm for urgent cases. This is a very well equipped, Cornerstone accredited practice. 


Whangamata is located in the stunning Coromandel region and is renowned for one of New Zealand’s most popular beach resorts.  It has a population of 4500, swelling dramatically to 80,000 plus during the holiday periods.   Move here for the best weather in the country, with temperatures ranging from mid to high 20’s in the summer.  This region is famous for its unique combination of beach and forest.  The spectacular ocean beach provides some of the best surfing breaks and yet the safest swimming in New Zealand.  There are a number of sports and cultural clubs, restaurants and 2 golf courses, which ensure there never needs to be a dull moment in Whangamata. There are two primary schools, as well as an Area School for secondary education.
