Job Details


We are looking for two Emergency Medicine Specialists to join our client`s Emergency Department on a permanent basis.  These positions are based in Whakatāne (110 bed hospital), which serves a population base of 50,000 in the Eastern Bay of Plenty. The Hospital is part of the region`s health board which also provides a larger base hospital in Tauranga, 90km away.

The department sees around 24,000 attendances per year and comprises 17 bed spaces including 2 resus bays. The patient mix is varied, with a high proportion of Māori and a relatively young demographic.

As well as enjoying a collaborative and supportive working environment, you will benefit from the support of our enthusiastic and progressive team whose focus on training and continuous quality improvement will afford you ample opportunity to both contribute to the service provision and develop professionally.

Applicants for this position will be registered or eligible for registration as determined by the Medical Council of New Zealand.  Applicants should be familiar with the principles of Te Tiriti O Waitangi and be committed to working alongside our team to achieve equity for our community.

Living in the sunniest place in New Zealand isn't the only reason people have to smile in the Eastern Bay of Plenty. Our stunning region offers New Zealand's recently voted favourite beach, endless other coastlines to ancient forests and is blessed with breath-taking landscapes and rich Māori culture. We showcase the perfect place to explore a wide range of nature-based pursuits – you don't have to forsake your career either, in fact why not enhance it with a better work-life balance.
