The Opportunity

The Department of Anaesthesia and Perioperative Medicine provides a comprehensive anaesthesia and perioperative medicine service to a wide range of surgical departments, including neurosurgery, ophthalmology, urology, trauma, intra-abdominal/breast/endocrine surgery, orthopaedics, vascular, solid organ transplant and interventional radiology, as well as acute and chronic pain management. Many of our patients are complex tertiary or quarternary referrals to our institution’s specialised surgical and procedural services.

Our Organization serves a diverse population.  Achieving equitable outcomes is a priority, with a particular focus on our Maori population.  Experience and expertise in delivering healthcare within a culturally safe framework, as well as an ongoing commitment to equity are essential.
