Job Description

Permanent GP

Start Date: February 2019 (9 sessions a week)

Rates: Negotiable depending on experience and qualifications

The Position
Our client is looking for a long term doctor starting the end of January 2019 - FTE .9 (usually takes off Thursday afternoon, but that is flexible). The doctor covers their own patients in hospital, on-call is 1:6 - so usually one night on call during the week - unless doing the weekend (from 8am Saturday to 8am Monday). They have a number of PHO contracts - most of which are delivered by the nurses, but the doctor will need to become up to speed with Advanced forms for tracking Palliative Care and Whanau Wellness visits, etc. They are also delivering free GP visits for pregnant patients as part of a University of Victoria study. We use Medtech-32.

They have experienced and friendly staff - 2 nurses - one full time enrolled nurse and one .6 FTE registered nurse - both work top of scope. Always a receptionist at the front and someone working in the back office as well every morning. The best doctor for them would be a sensible sort and kind, a good sense of humour would be an asset, and the skills and confidence to work in a rural hospital as well as a rural general practice setting is essential.

The Location
Located in a lovely Hawke's Bay town with great character. Explore this beautiful region of NZ, with its lovely beaches and laid-back lifestyle, internationally regarded wineries and gourmet produce.

Essential Criteria:
To be eligible to apply for this position you must be eligible for or hold general scope of practice with the Medical Council of New Zealand.
