The practice is looking for a GP to commit to at least 12 months, ideally permanently from as soon as possible. Flexible hours with some on-call. They are looking for a GP who enjoys working within a multidisciplinary team and is a team player.


The practice is a Cornerstone accredited integrated family health centre caring for an enrolled population of 17,000 patients, providing a wide range of services, including acute services, minor operations and nurse-led clinics. The practice is part of the Health Care Home programme in association with the Te Awakairangi Health Network.  The Health Care Home is a model of healthcare that supports general practice to be the healthcare hub and care co-ordinator for its enrolled patients, acting as a system integrator with the patient at the centre. The Practice was established as a multidisciplinary facility for the Upper Hutt community and this vision has been maintained and strengthened over the years with 15 GPs and a range of health professionals working on site in a collaborative way.  This includes: physiotherapy, audiology, radiology, podiatry, pharmacy and DHB district nurses.  There are also a number of other visiting specialist services. Being a teaching practice, they train GP registrars, medical students and student nurses based on existing relationships with local Universities.  They also hold Q-Audit Accreditation for office based practice.
