Mental Health & Addiction Services

Northland District Health Board, Mental Health and Addiction Services, has a new opportunity for a Consultant Psychiatrist to join our Child & Adolescent Mental Health Team covering the whole of Northland, from just north of Wellsford to the North Cape.

This position provides outpatient care from the main team location in Whangarei as well as from satellite clinics in other parts of the district. We encourage applications from doctors with an interest in broad-based approaches to care, including working with other government agencies (especially Oranga Tamariki and Education) and non-government organisations.

Northland District Health Board offers you professional support with a commitment to continuing professional development.
