Here at Southern DHB, we’re undergoing significant transformation, as we work towards becoming one system, working in partnership with the supporting the communities we serve.   With a focus on clinical and quality excellence, and on further enhancing our organisational culture, we aim to make Southern DHB an employer of choice where our staff are valued and empowered. In order to achieve this, we’re committed to putting the right people, with the right skills, into the right roles. 


A senior leadership opportunity is now available as General Manager Primary Care & Population Health.  This is a pivotal role within the organisation, and has overall directorate management responsibilities, partnering with Medical, Nursing and Allied Health leaders to ensure our Primary Care system is future facing, and delivering world class services to each community within our diverse and vast population.


A key responsibility of the GM Primary and Population Health will be leading the implementation of the Primary and Community Strategy alongside our PHO partners. This strategy is the critical vehicle by which the DHB will realise its integration agenda, and a key enabler as we look forward to the design and rebuild of the new Dunedin hospital in 2025. Crucial attributes for the role are a positive, can do attitude, a high level of credibility among clinical and managerial leaders, significant business acumen and above all an ability to get on and deliver outstanding results within constrained resources.

The Southern district offers the benefits of excellent amenities, first class primary through to tertiary education, affordable housing and outstanding recreational opportunities.  Whether it surfing, kayaking or sailing; skiing, hunting or fishing; theatre, live-music or art – there’s literally something for everyone. 


Closing Date: Friday, 26th January 2018.
