New Zealand Doctor is a niche publication aimed primarily at GPs and general practice, providing up-to-date news in print and online.
Our brief is broad – if it affects general practice, its business, staff, patients or ethos we’re interested.
Published fortnightly, the newspaper is staffed by a team of experienced journalists, including reporters in Wellington and Dunedin, who are dedicated to providing comprehensive coverage of news and current affairs relevant to primary care.
Also drawing on a wide range of commentators we delve into the political and philosophical issues facing the health sector.
Our website is updated daily with Doctor@Large e-newsletters sent to subscribers every weekday afternoon. Subscribers can also access the website via their smartphone.
We have a long history of delivering high-quality, in-depth news about general practice and primary care.
That quality of our journalism and design has been acknowledged through regular national and international media awards including, most recently, being judged Best Trade Professional Publication in the national Canon Media Awards.
Also in 2014, reporter Jeremy Olds won the Canon Junior Newspaper Feature Writer of the Year.
The same year senior journalist Virginia McMillan won an Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA) media award for her feature on pain, while another New Zealand Doctor reporter, Reynald Castaneda won a Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia media award.
