Learn more about doctors’ salaries and working conditions in New Zealand

Specialising in GP jobs across Australia and New Zealand, Aster Medical can provide you with comprehensive information on the average GP salaries, hospital doctor salaries and expected tax rates in New Zealand.

In New Zealand, it is the Government who sets the medical salaries which means that doctors are being paid the same amount for any particular job across New Zealand. GPs tend to earn between NZ$120,000 and NZ$185,000.

How much you will be paid will depend on:

  • How many hours you will be working per week
  • The number of postgraduate years you have worked for

Working conditions are very favourable in New Zealand in comparison, offering more study and annual leave, as well as fewer working hours for a better work/life balance.
