Job Description

Your community needs you …. !

At this time more than ever, Te Whatu Ora Waitemata is working towards creating an Emergency Service with a focus on delivering Excellent Emergency Care in line with our Manaaki Mana values of Manaakitanga, Whanaungatanga, Tika/Pono, Aroha and Whakamana.

You will be joining an open, energetic, and friendly SMO team with a culture of collaboration, support and curiosity. We will challenge you to continue to develop your interests and skills. We are passionate about what we do.

Waitematā Emergency Departments at North Shore and Waitākere service the largest district by population in the country with a diverse range of presentations. As a service we are committed to a culture of high performance, clinical innovation and teamwork.

At North Shore Hospital (NSH) you will be serving a population with good access to primary care and we have an admission rate of approximately 35%. A third of the presentations are over 65 so your challenges will include dealing with acutely unwell older adults where your immediate interventions will have a profound effect on patient outcomes.

At Waitākere Hospital (WTH) you will be working in one of the fastest growing, multicultural EDs in the country, with a significant paediatric population. At WTH ED you will need to lead and provide resuscitative care and arrange transport for all deteriorating patients without the direct involvement of speciality services like ICU because these are based at NSH.

Interested applicants must comply with the following:

  • Possess a Medical Degree registrable with the Medical Council of New Zealand
  • Have the Fellowship of the Australasian College of Emergency Medicine or a similar higher training qualification eligible for vocations registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand
