General Practice Services - Whanganui and Manawatu Prisons

GP - Locum

We are looking for individual general practitioners, or general practice or PHO teams to undertake the role of medical officer in our Whanganui and Manawatu prisons.

Corrections Health Services provides a stimulating environment for general practitioners to practise and further develop their skills in primary health care (including mental health and addictions), general medical, acute and long term condition management.

We need general practitioners who understand and are committed to the principles of partnership and health promotion, with innovative ideas for improving health in a vulnerable population group.

Our medical officers practise in a multi disciplinary team to assess, manage, monitor, prioritise and treat a diverse range of conditions and presentations.

We welcome applications from individuals and teams with complementary skills who value the importance of team work, and are willing to go the extra mile to support the delivery of positive health gains for prisoners.

For further enquiries and a copy of the Medical Officer Service Specifications, please contact Tina mc Nicholas.

Applications should be made in writing, including CV and cover letter addressed to Bronwyn Donaldson, General Manager Health.
