Current Vacancies

General Practitioner

An exciting opportunity has become available for a general practitioner to join our team at the Hastings Health Centre.  Due to growth and establishing a health centre in Havelock North we are seeking GP's for either part time or full time work with the opportunity to purchase a practice if desired.  There are minimal on call commitments in our after hours centre which is open from 8am - 8pm seven days per week.

We have an experienced and loyal team of nurses and other professionals who value strong leadership and can think outside the box.  Even though we are a large centre (NZ's largest medical centre) our unique set up continues to offer patients the personal experience of the traditional small practice but with the advantages of the multidisciplinary "one stop shop".

We have robust support systems in place, including links to wraparound services.  The centre is Cornerstone accredited and a teaching practice.  There are ample opportunities for CME provided on site, along with monthly GP and Peer Review meetings.

We are in Hastings, the heart of the sunny Hawke's Bay – access to great schools and facilities, culture, wine and food, and all without Auckland's traffic and house prices.

For further enquiries please email (Support Services Manager) or (CEO), or phone (06) 873 8999 and ask to speak to either Sophia or Andrew.
