Job description

Lakes District Health Board (LDHB) is seeking to appoint a part time Chief Medical Officer (CMO).

LDHB is committed to Te Tiriti o Waitangi and equity with a strategic priority of addressing the current health inequities being experienced by our Maori communities.

There is a growing multi cultural community with a large Te Arawa Maori population at the Rotorua end of our rohe and a large Ngati Tuwharetoa population in our Taupo/Turangi rohe. It is a tourism mecca and enjoys good weather both winter and summer. It is the gateway to the coast and the mountains, and is an ideally placed hub for passionate and committed people.

With abundant lakes, spectacular forests and amazing geothermal wonders, the Lakes region is the perfect home for nature lovers. Residents benefit from world class outdoor activities like boating, swimming, mountain biking, trail running and fishing. Rotorua and Taupo have become the lifestyle destination of choice for professional couples, families and people that have a passion for life and the outdoors.

Reporting to the Chief Executive, this position will work in partnership with the Lakes DHB Executive Team to achieve quality clinical outcomes within budgeted resources and also provide an effective clinical / management interface.

The Chief Medical Officer will provide professional leadership to the medical workforce. They will help drive the transformational change required to reduce inequity and deliver sustainable and excellent healthcare to some of the most deprived communities in New Zealand. The CMO has a critical role in supporting effective clinical governance and ensuring that patient safety and quality are at the forefront of care delivery.
