New Plymouth


We are seeking a permanent GP to join this small, friendly clinic in the west of New Plymouth. The ideal start date is as soon as possible, and the position is 3-4 days per week; meaning you will have plenty of spare time to enjoy the range of outdoor activities on offer in Taranaki!


The health care centre has approximately 1600 registered patients, and is growing. Therefore they are seeking an experienced practitioner to join one other long standing GP at the practice.

The clinic is a satellite of a larger (13 GP) practice based in New Plymouth, therefore further collegial support comes the larger practice. There is a focus on clear communication, honesty and transparency. The practice management team aim to maintain a low stress environment where staff feel valued and have high morale. Professional development is encouraged and supported.


New Plymouth is located in the region of Taranaki, which is on the west coast of the North Island.  It has an estimated population of 74,000 and is a mix of diverse cultures and contemporary styles. New Plymouth is becoming a popular region for visitors, businesses, migrants, refugees and their families.

The district is also known for its rugged coastline, world class surfing spots, fertile farming land, major events and, of course, the majestic Mt Taranaki (also known as Mt Egmont).

Taranaki’s mild climate allows residents and visitors ample opportunity to enjoy the many outdoor activities on offer. Taranaki has more sunshine hours than most of the country, while the rainfall is enough to keep the grass green and the fauna flourishing.

Diversity is celebrated in New Plymouth District. It is a safe, welcoming and community-orientated place to live.
