Job description

Consultant Psychiatrist
Invercargill Community Mental Health Team
Permanent or fixed term, 0.8FTE – full time available

• Your new life
• Building lasting relationships with patients
• Whatever you fancy you can do more of it here!

How? Well you will have more time to experience life rather than sitting on public transport, or in a traffic jam during your work commute. Working with a great team and community that cares.

We have an opening for a Consultant Psychiatrist within our community mental health team. Within the role, you will have the opportunity to work with patients from the age of 16 and over, providing integrated care throughout their journey through the healthcare system. You will see a wide range of presentations, providing clinics at our main clinic in Invercargill and in our rural clinics.
Within your generalist position, you will have the support of a great multidisciplinary team, which includes a team of extremely experienced Registered Nurses. Southern District Health Board embraces the use of technology, and you will have the opportunity to use it regularly as we take advantages of videoconferencing in the clinical setting, allowing us to make contact across our District
For those who have an interest, there is the opportunity to participate in the ongoing work of continuously improving upon on quality related issues within the Service, an area of interest to our team, showing that we are always striving to be the best we can be.

You will have the energy to make a positive difference with both patients and colleagues alike. In addition to enjoying a varied workload and an exceptional quality of life, you can look forward to a culture where staff are included, valued and respected for their expertise.

Situated at the base of the South Island of New Zealand, the people are renowned for their warmth and hospitality, there is space in abundance and national parks surround you. Weekends away can involve the city life of Dunedin, the wilderness of the Catlins or the all year playground that is Queenstown. We take great pride in our sense of community down south, and you will see this in the tight knit family feel amongst staff at Southland Hospital.

“I like working here, as it gives a perfect balance for work-life balance. I have time to go swimming after work, everything is nearby so we can take the children to activities without worrying about the time wasted in traffic”
