We would like our new doctor to be a team player, someone who has a sense of humour, good communication skills, is compassionate and goes the extra mile for our patients. We are a tight unit and all staff are willing to help out as required.

Dubbed the Riviera of the South, Riverton (population 1431) is located 30km west of Invercargill. You can still buy a house with a sea view for $165,000 and a section for under $30,000. Summer evenings see children boogie boarding until 9.30pm, while the adults dine free on the local crayfish, paua and mussels.
Want to swim with the dolphins? Well you don’t have to pay here. In winter there are plenty of brisk coastal walks, hiking in the hills, fishing and, in spring, whitebaiting. If you’re a lover of the outdoors then this is the perfect place for you to live.
