Situated in the sunny eastern coast of New Zealand’s North Island, the location offers vast golden sand beaches, bush clad mountains, lush farmlands and more. Its pleasant climate means that the area has become a favourite for holiday makers, retirees and those looking for a different lifestyle outside of the main cities.

Spread across a vast geographical area and centred across two hospitals.  They serve a population of approximately 259,000 for the major population centres.

About the Role

This is a rare opportunity to work in the beautiful Eastern Bay of Plenty looking after a diverse population.  The recent retirement of a Consultant Psychiatrist has created a permanent vacancy in the Mental Health and Addiction Service.

You will also work with other clinicians in a number of cross-district service relationships that include addiction services and mental health services for older people.

We are a teaching hospital with Psychiatric Registrars Training through the Upper Central North Island (UCNI) training scheme and 5th and 6th year medical students through the University of Auckland.
