Our Purpose

When you work with the Canterbury District Health Board, you're part of something very special. We plan, fund and deliver health services to the almost 600,000 New Zealanders that live in the Canterbury region. Our primary goal is to put people at the heart of everything we do.

The Team

We are looking for an enthusiastic experienced nurse who would enjoy becoming part of our dynamic and supportive team. Join the team in Ward 16 and you will become part of a cohesive and friendly MDT that cares for patients undergoing general surgery and a range of esophageal, gastric and biliary/pancreatic surgery including advanced laparoscopic procedures. Our unit also houses SARA (Surgical Assessment Review Area) which provides an area for acutely unwell patients to be assessed, investigated and an appropriate plan of care to be initiated.
