New Year. New Lifestyle. New Zealand 2017.

We are seeking a Consultant General Physician for a 110-bed district general hospital in the beautiful Bay of Plenty.

Whakatane offers a relaxed coastal lifestyle, and the Bay of Plenty region is now one of the fastest growing regions in New Zealand, with many kiwis moving down from Auckland and overseas migrants choosing to move here as well. 

With some of the best beaches in NZ on your doorstep such as Ohope, Mount Maunganui, Papamoa and Ohiwa, its ideal for those who love the great outdoors. 

  • Commence in 2017 and enjoy the kiwi lifestyle!
  • Looking for a Specialist physician interested in acute service development
  • Remuneration package (circa NZD$180k to NZD$280k), depending on experience
  • Generous relocation assistance
  • Strong real estate market and affordable housing to suit your style – apartment, townhouse, or lifestyle block
  • Beautiful natural surroundings – safe harbour, beautiful Ohope Beach, dolphins, whales & native birds
  • Living well and feeling healthy is embraced as a lifestyle for all the family

Whakatane is only 1 hour drive away from Tauranga City, the 5th largest city in NZ. Real estate is very reasonably priced and properties can range from apartment style living, to large detached houses with a garden, or even lifestyle blocks with a couple of acres of land attached. There are daily flights from Whakatane to Auckland, making international flight connections easy.

The Medicine department consists of  5 Consultants and 4 House Officers and provides General Internal Medical inpatient and outpatient services plus a range of sub specialty services, as well.  

As a team, they enjoy a collaborative and supportive working environment, they also share a focus on training and continuous quality improvement, enabling you an opportunity to also contribute to the service provision and to develop professionally.  

The team in Whakatane works closely with the base hospital site in Tauranga. Together, the two sites cater to a regional population of 230,000.
