Our Organisation

We are Te Whatu Ora Te Toka Tumai Auckland.

We are part of Te Whatu Ora – Health New Zealand, the overarching organisation for New Zealand’s national health service. Te Whatu Ora leads the day-to-day running of the health system, with functions delivered at local, district, regional and national levels.

The Opportunity

Based at Auckland City, one of the largest public hospitals in New Zealand Interventional Radiology at Auckland includes world class programs in vascular and non-vascular IR and is a recognised leader in clinical trials. Interventional Radiology provides 24-hour care to patients for the Northern Region and the regional service runs across several sites.

  • Our Interventional Radiology service provides a comprehensive range of procedures, including a busy peripheral vascular program and complex endovascular work performed in a dedicated hybrid suite
  • Interventional Radiology oversees in-patient and out-patient care, with dedicated IR out-patient clinics and in-patient management from admission to discharge 
  • The interventional oncology service provides trans-arterial embolisation and image guided ablation (RFA, MWA, Cryoablation, and IRE), and IR plays a key role in the transplant services (Liver, Kidney, Pancreas, Lung).
  • Interventional Radiologists lead and attend multi-disciplinary meetings in their areas of interest.
  • Interventional Radiology also provides reporting of non-invasive imaging including vascular MR, CT and US. Auckland has the national liver transplant unit and busy renal and lung transplant programs
  • Currently there are three interventional rooms overlapping with neuroradiology. There are 10 interventional radiologists in the regional service, and this role would be a replacement position for staff changes. The department has run a fellowship program for over 17 years, with two concurrent IR Fellows offset by 6 months.
  • An extensive redesign program is underway to develop a state of the art IR department.
