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

The Child and Family Unit at Princess Margaret Hospital is a 16 bed, specialist regional (South Island) in patient facility for children/adolescents under 18 years of age who require Specialist Mental Health Services care.

Children and adolescents who have severe psychiatric, emotional behavioural or developmental disorders are able to be assessed and/or treated within our service and there is also provision for family members to live-in, to enable them to be part of their child’s treatment programme.

We are looking for experienced Specialist Mental Health Nurse’s to join and become part of an energetic, dynamic, innovative and hardworking multi-disciplinary team of health professionals.

There are opportunities to be involved in recreational and leisure activities as part of your daily routine and no two days are ever the same in this fast paced, fun loving team.
