Mō mātou | About Us
The West Coast of the South Island is a rugged, isolated and beautiful part of Aotearoa New Zealand. From Karamea in the north, to Haast in the south, the coast is the largest geographical Te Whata Ora locality, but with a small population of 32,500. Providing health care in this environment is without doubt challenging, and the team here have fully adopted a Rural Generalist Model to ensure an equitable, high level of care is delivered to our community. The Rural Generalist team is flexible, multi-disciplinary and highly skilled - joining us will provide you with a raft of experience within the framework of our community and rural hospital-based services. Outside of work, the West Coast will also challenge and amaze you - bring your tramping boots, surfboard, mountain bike and kayak - you will need them all!
If you enjoy living within small rural communities or are wanting a change in lifestyle, then the West Coast is for you. For more information on the West Coast and why it is such a great part of the country, you can view information here.
The Rural Generalist (RG) Team is a highly motivated and supportive group of SMOs, largely formed of DRHMNZ and RNZCGP fellows and trainees; FACEMs and FACRRMs. The flexible and multi-disciplinary nature of the Generalist model means we can offer unique career development opportunities tailored to individual clinicians.
