New Zealand Life
New Zealand offers many similarities to the UK, and has become home for many expatriate doctors who have escaped to achieve a better work life balance. With lush green scenery, vibrant cities, white sandy beaches and access to more rugged ski territory on the Northern and Southern Islands, New Zealand is the perfect place to get the best out of your personal time.
The General Practice Role
New Zealand is one of the world's most picturesque countries and offers a dramatic landscape as well as modern major cities with all the luxuries you can expect from a UK city. Many UK Doctors have already made the move and settled in New Zealand.
Just over an hour's drive to some of the most important cities and towns in the North Island, the region also boasts easy access to recreational activities such as fishing, hunting, hiking, river rafting, bungee jumping and the largest ski area in the entire country. With Mt Ruapehu National Park and the Rangitikei River on your doorstep, the area is also host to some of the most recognisable filming locations in the Peter Jackson epic, Lord of the Rings.
