The Christchurch Doctors is a general practice in the central city and a member of the Pegasus Health primary health organisation.

We are a well supported team, with outstanding doctors, nursing, Health improvement practitioner, a Health Coach, reception and administration teams, and an engaging supported by our Practice Manager.

We are committed to ongoing professional development to ensure we can provide medical care in accordance with current best practice.

General Practices in New Zealand are funded to provide subsidised medical care to their enrolled population. This enables us to provide free consultations to under thirteen year olds and subsidised consultation fees to our enrolled patients.

Why work with Christchurch Doctors? 

  • The grass is actually greener (in 2011 one of the partners left the UK for a 9month working holiday…)
  • Appreciative patients.
  • Flexible leave.
  • Long weekend option available to explore NZ and recuperate.
  • Surf and ski in the same day from a Christchurch base (yes, really), you could walk out of your door in Sumner to a surf beach or drive 90minutes to Mount Hutt ski field (June to mid-October). 
  • Opportunities to go biking, fishing, hiking, backpacking and camping are plentiful, and if you're an outdoorsy person you'll have a lot to explore if you move to New Zealand, the possibilities are endless. 
  • Christchurch is well positioned to explore Asia and the Pacific, with many direct flights to amazing destinations.
  • The ‘great walks’ of New Zealand are easily accessible. The scenery is amazing, some of the best the world has to offer.
  • In New Zealand we recognise the importance of a work life balance and encourage extracurricular activities. No more refusal of leave requests: forget the NHS. Time off available to visit family in the UK!
