Capital and Coast District Health Board is one of 20 District Health Boards (DHBs) located throughout New Zealand. We serve a population of about 270,000 and provide some specialist services for a regional population of about 900,000 delivering community, primary, secondary and tertiary health services.

Specialist tertiary-level care is provided to patients from the lower North Island and upper South Island. These tertiary services include cardiology and cardiothoracic surgery, neurosurgery, vascular surgery, renal medicine and transplants, genetics, oncology, paediatric surgery, neonatal intensive care, obstetrics, endocrinology, orthopaedics and urology, and specialised forensic services. In total, we have about 5,500 employees, which makes C&C DHB a major employer in the Wellington region.

Wellington is our nation’s capital and, as anyone who lives here will tell you, it’s a place that tugs at your heartstrings; a compact, cosmopolitan, cultural city; a place you quickly begin to call home. The globally loved travel guide agency, Lonely Planet, named Wellington as the 4th top city in the world to visit…and we also think…to live.

It’s location at the bottom of the North Island puts Wellington close to vineyards in the Wairarapa and Marlborough and beaches on the Kapiti Coast, within a short distance to numerous golf courses nestled into the regional landscape and in the heart of a natural harbour offering opportunities for fishing and many water sports.

The Neurosurgery Service provides tertiary level services to the Wellington District and wider Central region including Nelson-Marlborough, Hawkes Bay, Mid Central, Whanganui and Wairarapa. Services are provided from Wellington.

An opportunity exists for an experienced Neurosurgeon. As well as clinical sessions including theatre and outpatient and outreach clinics, the role includes participation in an on-call roster shared with the four existing Neurosurgeons.

You must hold FRACS Neurosurgery or equivalent and be eligible for locum tenens or vocational registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand. You will pride yourself on providing a high standard of clinical practice and expertise to the patients under your care. You will be a team player and clear communicator, willing to assist with the supervision and instruction of junior doctors within the Neurosurgery Service.

All candidates applying for any of our current vacancies must complete an online C&C DHB application form by clicking the 'Apply Here Now' button (applications for positions will not be accepted unless accompanied by one).
