About Te Oranganui:
Te Oranganui is an iwi led organisation that was established in 1993 to improve access and service delivery of health services to Maori in the Whanganui Region. Over time the roles and functions of the organisation have grown and the organisation now delivers a range of health and social services throughout the region to Maori and Non Maori Whanau.
We are seeking an experienced GP to join our well-established Whanganui practice. This is a full time position, ideally 5 days per week however this is negotiable, as is the start date.
We are also seeking a part-time GP to service our satellite clinic in Waverley (45 minute drive from Whanganui). This clinic is currently open two days a week however there are additional days and hours available in the Whanganui clinic. Weekly team briefings and mentoring support will be provided.
The practice employs three permanent vocationally registered GPs, the team here work very well together and there is excellent collegial support. The GPs work alongside an excellent nursing team and a supportive Administration team. The clinic is located in a lovely well-equipped building with modern facilities. There are around 6000 registered patients, with a high Maori population.
Staff must have a good level of cultural awareness, or be open to learning about different cultures. All new staff will be supported to complete the organisations Whanau Ora training, ensuring there is a consistent understanding of the organisations Whanau Ora approach.
