  • 349 bed secondary hospital that provides level 4-5 services
The Position
Our client is seeking a diligent General Medicine and Geriatric Physician to join a friendly and vibrant team. The DHB is incredibly forward thinking and is committed to developing innovative ways of looking after the older population from the community to residential care. Your primary responsibility will be to provide efficient and high quality investigation and treatment services to the community served by the District Health Board. 

The department has strong links with emergency and acute medicine and with this you will participate in the acute medicine roster. Within the department, there are also specialist Stroke, Orthogeriatric, Movement Disorder and Rehabilitation services. There is scope to develop areas of special interest, including (if desired) clinical research through the local Clinical School. The school helps to foster a learning culture across undergraduate and postgraduate staff in many disciplines.

The Hospital
The post is based in a 349 bed secondary hospital that provides level 4-5 services including medical, surgical, paediatrics, obstetrics, gynaecology and mental health. The hospital is also a base for a range of associated clinical support services and allied health, such as rehabilitation, speech therapy, physiotherapy, stroke and cardiac support, district nursing and drug and alcohol programmes.

Situated a 2.5 hour drive from Auckland, the city sits right on the water’s edge and is well-known for its blue skies, warm climate, sparkling harbour and relaxed lifestyle. The waterfront plays a major part in the life of this city; it is always buzzing with a number of cafés, restaurants, pubs and nightclubs. An abundance of activities await; go sailing, fishing or dolphin watching and soak up the stunning coastal environment.

Essential Criteria
To be successful in applying for this position you must be eligible for vocational registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand and you must hold specialist qualifications. Our client is looking for a candidate who is a skilled communicator, has a broad and balanced perspective, and effective and efficient resource management.
