Job Description

Our Purpose: What We're Here For

When you work with the Canterbury District Health Board, you're part of something very special. We're world leaders in the delivery of integrated health care, and we're always striving to Make It Better. From the carers on the front line working directly with patients and communities, to our talented support teams who enable that care, we plan, fund and deliver health services to the almost 600,000 New Zealanders that live in the Canterbury region. And we're all about putting people at the heart of everything we do.

Our Culture: What Matters To Us

Ko Te Whatu Manawa Tangata
Putting people at the heart of all we do

For us to continue putting our communities at the centre of our health system, we're putting our own people at the centre of everything we do. Because health is ultimately all about people. What's important around here is the way we care for and respect others, the responsibility that all our people take for delivering outcomes, and that we go about our work with integrity in all we do.

What matters to us is doing the right thing, valuing everyone, and being and staying well ourselves so we can care for our community.

The Role: What This Opportunity's All About

Adult Acute Inpatient West is a 16 bed adult acute inpatient unit that provides 24 hour care for consumer with mental illness. Our model of care focuses on single integrated multidisciplinary teams, incorporating inpatient and outpatient teams, providing excellent care to consumer in the least restrictive manner.

We are committed to:

  • supporting consumers towards recovery
  • working in partnership with consumers, their family / whanau / carers and wider community supports to facilitate the best treatment outcomes
  • providing treatment with privacy and dignity in a socially inclusive least restrictive environment, recognising the consumer's cultural and spiritual needs
  • providing a safe environment.

You will require New Zealand registration or be eligible for New Zealand registration and have a current practicing certificate with a strong background in Mental Health.

We cater to a diverse community with a range of complex mental health issues so you will need to be a great communicator who can build rapport easily. You will have a passion for working in mental health in an inpatient setting alongside the ability to work effectively with MDT.

This is a permanent, full-time role (40 hours per week).
