Job description

Women’s Health at MidCentral DHB has gone through exciting changes in the last five years. We are now a truly multidisciplinary team working together in improvement and innovation with a focus on the best possible outcomes for women, babies and families in our community and on the DHB’s values “Compassionate, Respectful, Courageous and Accountable”. Among the achievements in the last years are significant decreases in Caesarean Section rates and the establishment of an efficient one-stop-shop post-menopausal bleeding clinic.

As one of our team members will soon retire, we are now looking for a specialist to join our obstetrics and gynaecology service in a full time capacity (1FTE). This role will suit either a newly qualified or an experienced Obstetrician and Gynaecologist with a range of generalist skills. The ideal applicant will also have a special interest in obstetrics and obstetric ultrasound. If you have an interest in research there are great possibilities at MidCentral DHB.

To be eligible for this position you must either be registered (or eligible) with the Medical Council of New Zealand and have a specialist qualification in Obstetrics and Gynaecology that is recognised by the Royal Australia and New Zealand College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology as suitable for Vocational Registration in New Zealand.

The obstetric service provides a range of primary and secondary inpatient and outpatient care in the MidCentral District including obstetric ultrasound and a multidisciplinary antenatal diabetic clinic. These services are provided from Palmerston North Hospital. The neonatal unit accepts babies from 28 weeks gestation. Primary Birthing units are located in Palmerston North, Levin and Dannevirke. There are around 2000 births a year within the DHB. Gynaecology services, including colposcopy, urogynaecology, fertility and hysteroscopy 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 (Levin), Feilding and at Dannevirke by MidCentral Health consultants. The successful candidate will take part in the on-call roster. There is 24/7 cover of both a registrar and a house officer and the unit is accredited for both core and advanced RANZCOG trainees.
