West End Medical has vacancies for two GP’s – 0.4 to 0.8 FTE

Start date: End of February 2021

We are a Cornerstone Accredited VLCA Practice operating under the Neighbourhood Healthcare Homes Model

We have a great supportive friendly team of Doctors, Nurses and Administration who love to teach and share innovative ideas. Our practice is family friendly operating out of a lovely old villa in central Whangarei.

Whilst we are a very busy practice we still find time to have a laugh

For more information please phone our Practice Manager:

Iain Watkins – email:  admin@westendmed.co.nz

Staff Changes

Unfortunately, our lovely young English doctors, Dr Matthew Barns and Dr Vicky Barns are leaving us at the end of February to continue their journey through life. They have been a great asset to the practice bringing new ideas from their experiences overseas. They have always had wonderful feedback from their patients. We will all miss them very much but wish them all the best in their future adventures.

We will continue to provide medical support to Matthew and Vicky’s patients.

We are actively trying to recruit new GPs into the practice, but this has been made difficult the Covid 19 outbreaks overseas. To date we have had no applicants from New Zealand as there is a serious shortage of New Zealand GPs.
