Job Description

Hauora a Toi Bay of Plenty is seeking to appoint Consultant Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in a secondary care setting at Hauora a Toi Bay of Plenty. This is a permanent position and will suit a Generalist Obstetrician & Gynaecologist with an interest in Obstetrics. Permanent full-time or part-time position by negotiation.

Applications are invited from consultant Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, and Advanced Trainees in their final year of training.

The post involves an equal share of the on-call roster, covering both Obstetrics and Gynaecology. The current average call frequency is 1:9 with split weekends. Outpatient/Daytime responsibilities include Antenatal clinics, Gynaecology and colposcopy clinics and Theatre when not on call. Cover is provided by 8 Registrars and 4 SHO’s on a common roster with a requirement to participate in teaching, service development and clinical governance.

We are working towards a system that better meets the complex demands of a growing population, addresses the persistent inequalities experienced by Māori and ensures greater access, experience and outcomes for those traditionally not well served by the system – Māori, Pacific and Disabled People.
