This practice is a purpose-built surgery where you will be part of a dynamic team of professionals, including four general practitioners, one nurse practitioner, a community nurse prescriber, a nurse prescriber in training, a nurse manager, six nurses, two health care assistants, a health improvement practitioner, a health coach, and four receptionists.  Working between six to eight sessions per week (3 to 4 days) you will see a varied mix of patient presentations.


Boasting a 20-year legacy in the heart of Tuakau, this practice is synonymous with unparalleled patient care standards. They stand proud as a Cornerstone accredited entity, working tirelessly to deliver innovative primary health solutions to one of New Zealand’s most culturally diverse populations. But their mission doesn’t end here. They envision a sustainable future for general practice in Tuakau, and they’re now looking for like-minded individuals to help them continue our work.

Currently the practice has approximately 7,100 registered patients. The patient mix is predominantly Pakeha (European), along with Māori, Pacific Island and high needs patients.

Each GP sees, on average, 25 to 30 patients each day, with each patient attending 15 minute-appointments.  In addition to this, there are also Nurse-led clinics run within the practice.
