We have an exciting opportunity for a GP to join a well established community run practice. Fancy escaping Autumn and Winter this side of the world?  This opportunity could be the one for you. 

  • Short to long term commitment 
  • Flexible with start dates in 2018 & 2019
  • Cornerstone accredited community practice
  • Competitive salary and benefits package available

Christchurch, also known as the “Garden City” is the largest city in the South Island. It is the main transport hub for the Canterbury region offering a Domestic and International Airport, Bus Terminal and Rail Link. Widely known also for its fantastic eateries, bars, shops and all manors of leisure pursuits. 

Situated 1 hour south of Christchurch and an International Airport, if you have a love for the great outdoors, this beautiful location offers something for everyone. This long established, family friendly, busy semi-rural community practice is looking for a GP to join the team initially for a short fixed term but they will welcome the prospect of extending the contract. When you are not in the practice, you are only a short trip away from checking out the Ski Field at Mount Hutt, jet skiing on the lake or why not take in the beautiful scenery as you walk through the Foothills.

Medical professionals are well-remunerated and enjoy good working conditions and an excellent work life balance in New Zealand. There’s never been a better time to look more closely at what NZ has to offer:
