GP Locum Jobs & Urgent Care Jobs

GP jobs, Urgent Care jobs, GP locum jobs and other doctor jobs are constantly available through medical recruitment in New Zealand, with opportunities for practice in a variety of settings and locations. This is a rewarding career path for doctors who enjoy engaging with the community, seeing patients from all walks of life and in all age groups. As the front line of healthcare, GPs and Urgent Care doctors provide primary health care, with patients presenting diverse and interesting pathologies including treatment of chronic health conditions. This important scope of medicine is highly regarded and valued in New Zealand society, where a continuity of care is highly desirable and patients often see one GP for the majority of their life span.

Doctors working in GP locum jobs also provide crucial cover to urban and rural clinics to ensure primary health services are available throughout New Zealand. Urgent Care physicians work in either dedicated walk-in clinics, or a mixture of GP and Urgent Care settings. Procedural skills in Emergency Medicine, Obstetrics, Anaesthesia and minor surgery are valuable for doctors interested in working in GP locum jobs in rural settings, with many smaller rural hospitals staffed by GPs with these skills. New Zealand offers great opportunities to test your skill set, grow your career and get to know Kiwi society in a rewarding and respected role as a GP.
