Permanent full time role
At Counties Manukau Department of Anaesthesia we recognise that our strength is our people. Our anaesthetists are collegial, flexible and skilled team members. Together we meet the demands of a busy clinical workload for a broad range of surgical specialties, serving a diverse ethnic and socio-economic population.
Permanent and fixed term posts are available, and fulltime employment is preferred. In line with current international practice Counties Manukau is looking to develop a world-class perioperative medicine service and therefore special consideration will be given to anaesthetists with perioperative medicine experience or interest.
CM Health surgical services operate over two sites; Middlemore Hospital, a 1000+ bed hospital with 14 operating theatres, and Manukau Surgical Centre, an elective surgical unit of 78 beds, 10 operating theatres and an anaesthesia-led post-operative care unit. We provide approximately 32,000 anaesthetic episodes per year for all surgical services, except cardio-thoracics and neurosurgery, for adult and paediatric patients as well as a busy obstetric service. Middlemore Hospital has one of the busiest acute surgical units in Australasia, requiring specialist cover on-site in the evenings and weekends to support 5 fellows and 23 anaesthesia trainees.
Our friendly and supportive department aims to have a culture of continuous improvement. Departmental members are team players, treat patients and staff with kindness, and contribute to our collective skillset with a variety of clinical and non-clinical interests and skills. Staff are expected, and are supported, to participate in departmental administrative, quality assurance and educational activities.
CM Health's shared vision is to work in partnership with its communities to improve the health status of all, with particular emphasis on Maaori and Pacific peoples and other communities with health disparities. Our employees make a positive difference to the people we serve, to the communities we work in, and to each other.
