Rotherham - Ref 767232

General Practitioner

Rotherham, Canterbury - view map

Contract: Permanent
Start date: 15 November (negotiable)

  • A modern four bedroom house will be provided
  • Work well as part of an experienced and supportive team
  • Amazing mountain scenery


This practice is seeking a permanent GP. The role is ten sessions per week (negotiable), and there may be an on-call requirement but this is under review. We are looking for someone who will work well as part of an experienced and supportive team. This position should appeal to a GP seeking a rural lifestyle in an area that has great natural features, a benign climate, and a socio-economic environment that is the envy of others. If you are a team player, an effective communicator, interested in a variety of work, and have a patient centred approach then this is the right position for you.

The practice is a leading part of the Hurunui Model of Care project currently being undertaken in partnership with the District Health Board. This project pilots innovative enhancements to primary care in the rural sector. If you would like “to make a difference” this is the place for you.


This is a community owned and operated business. The staff have very skilled nurses and a great administration team. Over the years the practice has been fortunate to have retained the services of highly skilled and dedicated doctors and nurses.

The practice is prepared to offer a comprehensive package that can be shaped in different ways to suit individual preferences. A modern four bedroom house will be provided.
