Job Description

Permanent ED Consultant/Head of Dept

The Position

Our client is after a motivated emergency doctor to fill the position of ED Head of Department. Clinical leadership, operational management and strategic focus are combined within this role to provide a high quality acute service to the population within the region. As part of the role it is important to maintain a positive team and patient-centred culture and manage resources efficiently. This role sits alongside a clinical emergency department consultant position, which includes rostered and rotating shifts and scheduled non-clinical time.

Service Overview

The Emergency Department has approximately 20,000 presentations each year (including paediatrics) and an admission rate of around 30 percent due to a co-located acute care facility. The department is well equipped with a 5-bed short stay ward and performs a range of ED-based procedures including manipulations and cardioversions under sedation.

The Location

The town and region is known for its natural beauty and access to the great outdoors for which New Zealand is famous for. The attractions of the Central North Island such as Lake Taupo, Rotorua and Tongariro National Park is only a short drive away. Learn to live again.

Essential Criteria

The doctor must be eligible to become a Fellow of the Australasian College of Emergency Medicine (FACEM) and eligible to hold vocational registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand.
