We are looking for a Consultant Psychiatrist to join this General Adult team. The position provides general adult community based clinical care across a wide area and would be ideal for those with a strong interest in rural psychiatry and broad skills in general adult mental health.

Working in partnership with the wider health; social and community sectors, you will join an innovative multidisciplinary team in contributing to an integrated model of service delivery in both outpatient and inpatient settings.  


Located in the north of the North Island this region was the first one to be settled by Polynesians and Europeans. The landscape combines a diversity of different environments: breath-taking surf beaches and rocky bays, steep volcanoes and hill ranges, ancient rainforest bush as well as 'exotic' pine forests, rolling farmland for grazing - even New Zealand's highest sand dunes. It also boasts the highest average annual temperatures in New Zealand, but it is never extreme.
