I wouldn't agree that Australia has a better (sunnier) climate than NZ - both are big countries with widely variable conditions so pick your area. Oz, however, has a wide range of poisonous/dangerous species so probably better for Doctors :-)

Hello! I am a junior doctor and my husband a consultant and we've been considering a move to Nz for similar reasons, ultimately fed up of the NHS and crap work life balance here in the uk. How have you found the application process and do you have a date to move here yet? I'd like to speak to some people over there already but can't find he best way? Thanks!

Hi Lilibetliz,

My experience of obtaining a consultant post in Christchurch NZ is straightforward. The advert for the post was circulated by email at the time I had completed my training. I expressed my interest and was invitied over for a face to face interview. The interview was less demanding than the nhs ones I had attended. The interview could also be done by teleconference, but I wanted to check out the place.

With the job offer, I applied to MCNZ for vocational scope and had a video conference interview by Australasian college reps. Once provisional scope was granted everything else just fell into place. Contract negotiation, visa, tickets, removals... Although the DHB paid for flights and removal, there is considerable cost of more than 10000 pounds closing shop in UK and setting up in NZ.

One year on, I hv not regretted the move. Surprised to see so many UK trained doctors. It might be more tricky obtaining a training post though.
