Job description

MidCentral District Health Board is seeking to recruit an experienced full time Obstetrician and Gynaecologist to add to the clinical expertise of the department.

The ideal applicant will have at least five years working at specialist level, and we would value experience in ‘high risk’ Obstetrics and Ultrasound (ideally some form of advanced training such as the DDU or a recognised equivalent). However, all candidates will be considered. Applicants must be eligible for Vocational Registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand.

The obstetric service provides a range of primary and secondary inpatient, outpatient, day patient and community-based care in the MidCentral District. These services are provided from Palmerston North Hospital.

Primary and limited secondary obstetric services are provided by MidCentral Health from Horowhenua Health Centre, while outpatient postnatal services operate from Feilding.

Gynaecology services, including colposcopy and fertility clinics, are provided at Palmerston North Hospital on an inpatient and outpatient basis for women throughout the MidCentral District. Outpatient clinics are also provided at Horowhenua Health Centre and at Dannevirke by MidCentral Health consultants.

This is an exciting time to join MidCentral District Health Board (MDHB) as it is embarking upon a transformational change programme to firmly establish itself as a high performing health system that meets the current and future demands of its communities, that provides improved patient experiences for service users, and that achieves improved patient and community health and wellbeing.

MDHB will build on its significant achievements to date, in particular its investment in developing primary and community care services and relationships. It will work to further reduce service duplication and fragmentation, to move care into and closer to people’s homes, and to achieve an integrated and community focused high performing health system.

Qualifications required

A specialist qualification in Obstetrics and Gynaecology and eligible for Vocational Registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand
