Job description

We are increasing our inpatient psychiatrists from 2 to 3 FTE in our busy Acute Mental Health Recovery Unit, Te Whare O Matairangi (TWOM).

TWOM provides acute and intensive inpatient services for people experiencing severe mental distress, too unwell to be cared for at home and who require intensive care, treatment and support. The focus for treatment at the unit is on recovery and returning people to their home, usually within 2-3 weeks, with community support if required. We aim to provide the best possible clinical care in a respectful, supportive, safe and caring environment. The Unit has a team of highly skilled psychiatrists, nurses and allied health staff providing assessment, diagnosis and treatment for adults with serious mental illness and severe psychological disorders. They work in collaboration with the service user, their family/whanau and the community clinical teams to promote recovery.

Are you:

• Experienced in General Adult Mental Health (inpatient)

• Vocationally registered with the Medical Council of New Zealand (www.mcnz.org.nz) and hold a valid APC
