We have a number of unique yet very exciting opportunities in the picturesque West Coast Region of the South Island of New Zealand for an adventurous GP looking for a new adventure. 







Greymouth is the largest town on the South Islands West Coast. The mouth of the river divides the town into three areas. The location offers remarkable views from the coastal Point Elizabeth Walkway and also has great opportunities for caving, river tubing, white-water rafting to the more relaxed activities such as sea fishing & fly fishing. 

  • Locum & permanent GP positions 
  • Part-time or Full-time hours available
  • Various positions available starting immediately
  • Competitive fixed salary or sessional rates available  
  • Benefits package of car hire, furnished accommodation for the duration of your stay

The region comes with the unique opportunity to work in rural practices which gives you more variety and exposure to primary and secondary care than that of urban practices. With the national parks, coastline, rivers, lakes, mountains and glaciers as your backyard, you'll struggle to find a place that offers more scenic beauty and outdoor activities.

The TranzAlpine passenger train which is names as one of the top six train journeys in the world runs from Christchurch, taking you through the stunning planes of Canterbury then right through the Southern Alps where it then terminates in Greymouth.

If you are looking for a change of scenery or even a change of pace and have a love for the outdoors, this could very well be the location and the job opportunity you have been waiting for.

New Adventure, New Lifestyle .... Why not make it in New Zealand

Why NZ?

New Zealand is becoming more and more a location of choice for those who previously considered Australia as the most desirable location down under. Its rapid growth compared to other developed countries has recently seen it ranked as the second safest country in the world to live and in the "2018 Quality of Living Rankings" Auckland was voted 3rd & Wellington 15th best city to live and work.

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