General Practitioner – Coromandel – New Zealand


Known for its pristine beaches, misty forests and laid-back atmosphere, the Coromandel is one of New Zealand’s most popular holiday destinations. This area is the opposite of a big city. With a mountainous interior wrapped in native rainforest and over 400 kilometres of beautiful white sand beaches, it is rustic, unspoilt and relaxing. The main town on Mercury Bay is Whitianga. The Mercury Bay is well known for kayaking, boating and saltwater fishing. Nearby the town you will find the underground thermal minerals at the Lost Spring or the Hot Water Beach where you can dig your own spa.

The position is offered by a regional GP practice based in Whitianga. It’s owned by 3 directors, 2 of whom are UK trained GPs who are now permanent residents of Whitianga. Recently they merged with another centre and they now own 2 sites within walking distance. They expect growth of the patient population and want to expand their practice and are therefor looking for a General Practitioner.

Job description

On behalf of this practice, we are currently looking for a general practitioner for a full time position, for minimal appointment of one year.

The right candidate will work in a team with 6 GPs and receive support from an excellent nursing team. The practice is opened on weekdays from 8:45am till 5pm. In the weekend there is a short shift, on Saturday from 9:00am till 11:00am and on Sunday a shift of one hour from 10am-11am. They work with one overnight call shift per week, but it’s rare to receive a call since the nurse will triage most of the time. Patients are booked in at 15 minute consultations, and there is time for paperwork and telephone inquiries. It’s a teaching practice which means you will teach medical students from time to time. There is a budget in place for attending courses and conferences.
