We’re keeping ourselves and our community safe through vaccination.
We’re on the hunt for an NZ registered General Practitioner or NZ registered Nurse Practitioner to join our high energy, motivated and supportive team.
This is an opportunity to be part of our proactive and innovative rural primary care practice who care for a wide and diverse patient population. Many are high needs with complex medical and social situations – so there’s plenty to get your brain into. Alongside our routine work we run an acute service and also general community based and condition specific clinics. Additionally, we operate as a PRIME site during practice hours, support visiting secondary services, undertake minor surgery, utilise point of care testing wherever possible and enjoy taking part in clinical trials. We are a teaching practice that encourages ongoing learning at all levels, but most of all we love creative ideas for delivering high quality health services that put our patients at the centre of their care, and genuinely improves their health and wellbeing.
Set up to provide a working environment where everyone can enjoy job satisfaction but also where work-life balance is the key, we’re a not-for-profit charity run by a Board of Trustees. We’re a Monday to Friday practice with after-hours needs being looked after by a phone triage service. Even thought we’re constantly growing we manage our GP/NP:PT ratio to 1:1000-1400 pro rata. We provide lots of opportunities for everyone to follow their own special interests and work collaboratively in a multidisciplinary way both within the practice and with external providers.
We’re are looking for a ‘can-do’ team player who is adaptable, flexible and loves the variety provided by our fast-moving environment. You will need to be great at collaborating and sharing your skills and knowledge. Most of all you must show mutual respect for the skills and talents of everyone in our team – admin, clinical, management and allied health professionals alike. We love the fact that everyone gets an equal voice in designing services and operating the practice.
If you are a Te Reo Maori speaker or willing to live at the southern end of the lake we will see this as a real bonus.
Your salary will be competitive, with plenty of study opportunities, assistance with Medical Council of NZ fees, Medical Indemnity cover, and Practising Certificate fees.
