With over 110,000 adult and paediatric patients per year our Emergency Department at Middlemore Hospital is one of the busiest in Australasia. Middlemore Hospital is situated in a lower socio economic area and serves a high need population with high acuity presentations.

Counties Manukau Health is a dynamic and progressive organisation that offers and innovative and transformative approach to delivering more effective services and better outcomes for our people, families and communities.

We have a great opportunity for a PEM specialist to join our dynamic team. The long term strategic goal for our mixed adult and paediatric Emergency Department (ED) and Department of Paediatrics is to move from a mixed ED model to a separate Paediatric focused and governed ED.
