This is a busy, teaching practice and employs six full time GPs. The clinic staff also includes seven experienced practice nurses, and a practice manager who ensures a well-structured, well run and friendly working environment.
The clinic is based five minutes from Grey Base Hospital and owned by the West Coast District Health Board (DHB).
The vacancy is four days per week, with time during the day allocated for administration. New GPs enjoy excellent support provided not only within the practice, but throughout the diverse GP network on ‘the Coast’.
The practice offers an extremely competitive remuneration package for a long-term GP. This will include relocation assistance, costs of registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand and other professional fees. Accommodation and a vehicle will be provided for your first three months in New Zealand.
Greymouth is at the heart of the West Coast and is the commercial centre of the region. The surrounding scenery is breath-taking, and the TranzAlpine train from Christchurch is recognised as one of the top train trips in the world.
Greymouth and the surrounding areas have numerous heritage attractions, adventure activities, tramping and cycling tracks, rugged coastlines and beautiful national parks. The area has a history of gold mining, which can be appreciated at the local museum and nearby Shantytown. The local Monteith’s brewery is something of a New Zealand legend; it runs tours that include a tasting session.
