New Plymouth, Taranaki, was named the most liveable city, for a population between 75,000-150,000, by the International Awards for Liveable Communities

Taranaki boasts some of New Zealand’s most iconic natural landscapes like Mt Taranaki and its many adventure activities. The rugged and wild coastline is home to more than 12 world-class surf breaks. Taranaki is a place where you can ski, surf, and mountain bike in the same day.

Te Whatu Ora – Taranaki is a large regional organisation operating in the exciting, changing Health sector. To hear more about our culture, view the video on our  careers page .

You will be part of small but strong multidisciplinary acute and persistent pain team. The Acute Pain Service is supported by acute pain nurses and other anaesthetists. The Persistent Pain Service consists of another FPMANZCA pain specialist, a physiotherapist, psychologist, social worker, and a new chronic pain nurse to support acute inpatient, and outpatient transitional and persistent pain. There are good relationships with Palliative Care and the Alcohol and Drug services. Your role will be divided between outpatient clinics, inpatient acute and acute-on-chronic pain assessments, assisting with group pain education programs, and some registrar and house-officer teaching. There are no after-hours on-calls for the persistent pain service. There is the option of providing pain interventions if this is part of your practice.

You would join a group of 23 Anaesthetic Consultants. The Anaesthetic service is supported by a full complement of Anaesthetic Technicians who assist at all anaesthetics. This is a teaching hospital with six Anaesthetic Registrars and a provisional fellow. Supervision and clinical teaching is expected.

The successful candidate will take part in an anaesthesia on-call rota with Registrar support.

Administration time is rostered as per ASMS MECA agreement.

A minimum of 0.5 FTE of pain service work is required, with the option to balance with Anaesthesia clinical work up to 1.0 FTE. Consideration for pain specialists with an alternate speciality may be an option pending accommodation by that specialty service. Please contact us to discuss.

To discuss the post informally please contact Dr Peter Marko, Head of Department on 0064 6 753 6139 or by e-mail [email protected]

    Manufacturing is the production of merchandise for use or sale using labour and machines, tools, chemical and biological processing, or formulation. The term may refer to a range of human activity, from handicraft to high tech, but is most commonly applied to industrial production, in which raw materials are transformed into finished goods on a large scale. Such finished goods may be sold to other manufacturers for the production of other, more complex products, such as aircraft, household appliances, furniture, sports equipment or automobiles, or sold to wholesalers, who in turn sell them to retailers, who then sell them to end users and consumers.
