About us

We are a community-orientated hospital (not too big and not too small) providing a full range of secondary care services including general dispensary pharmacy, drug information and advice, education and counselling, and extemporaneous manufacture.  In this environment you will be encouraged to have a go at everything, which will both challenge and extend your clinical experience and skills.  We provide a wide range of clinical services encompassing both generalist and specialist skills so there’s no better place to move your career forward. 

About You

Hospital pharmacy experience is preferred but not absolutely essential as we may be able to offer full orientation to hospital pharmacy practice for the right candidate.  You must however be registered or eligible to register as a Pharmacist with the Pharmacy Council of New Zealand under the provisions of the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act 2003, with the right to work in New Zealand.
