Success is not the work of one, but the work of many
Fixed-term and/or part-time will be considered
We are seeking suitably qualified Consultant Radiologists to join our dynamic Radiology team and to contribute to the development of the Radiology department.
We are looking for a general radiologist, ideally with subspecialty skills in Ultrasound (including Obstetric, Gynaecology and MSK). Candidates with a broad general scope and subspecialty skills in nuclear medicine, body imaging, chest or paediatric radiology would be preferred.
Applicants must be registered, or eligible for registration, with the Medical Council of New Zealand as avocationally registered Radiologist. Candidates from comparable health systems (UK, US, SA, western Europe and Singapore) with at least three years work experience on consultant level are preferred as registration with the Medical council is more likely.
The team and department
The department is currently expanding and we have one vacancy in our team (currently 1.0 FTE) for a qualified Consultant Radiologist.
Our Radiologists are currently part of a cohesive, friendly team in one of the more advanced departments in the country. The work of the department is varied and often challenging. The Radiologists are by necessity multi-skilled/general radiologists, but the development of a special interest is supported.
The single site department is situated centrally within the hospital and has the following facilities:
128 Slice GE Discovery CT750 HD scanner
Modern 1.5T GE MRI
GE Discovery NM/CT 670 - SPECT/CT with 16 slice CT scanner
Four ultrasound machines (including three GE Logiq E9)
Siemens Artis catheter and vascular laboratory (Angio)
Siemens Artis multipurpose fluoroscopy unit
Three new General X-ray rooms including two dual-detector DR rooms (Philips)
Fully integrated RIS/PACS and voice recognition (Philips)
Hawke's Bay Radiologists have a collegial approach and an active commitment to ongoing education. Multidisciplinary meetings are held daily, weekly or monthly with virtually all specialties being involved.
Since the inception of teleradiology there is no night-time on-call requirement. Weekend day call is covered by a roster attracting additional payment, which all Radiologists are expected to participate in.
The successful applicant will possess either FRANZCR or equivalent that would lead to specialist recognition, e.g. FRCR.
Our district is large enough to provide variety and depth of work experience, with good support and supervision, yet small enough to be a friendly team with good social interaction. Hawke's Bay Hospital is a 400 bed hospital providing acute and elective care for the Hawke's Bay region. We have strengthened Primary and Community health services and an increasingly integrated approach to health and health care.
The Hospital is a teaching site in partnership with Wellington Medical School, the University of Otago and the local Eastern Institute of Technology (EIT).
We are proud of our team's diversity. We believe in the strength of a diverse and inclusive workforce, to help us achieve the best outcomes for our patients and the communities in which we operate and serve.
Our values are He kauanuanu - Respect, ?kina - Improvement, Raranga te tira - Teamwork and Tauwhiro - Care
