Our Purpose: Why we do it

When you work with the Canterbury District Health Board, you're part of something very special. We plan, fund and deliver health services to the almost 600,000 people that live in the Canterbury region. Our primary goal is to put people at the heart of everything we do.

The Team: What we do

Our Specialist Mental Health Services are provided by a number of outpatient, inpatient, community-based and mobile services throughout Canterbury. Our Physiotherapy team work within a range of clinical areas between Inpatient and Outpatient services based at Hillmorton Hospital. Our treatment often includes support with exercise and lifestyle strategies, and referral on to appropriate services in the wider community or within the Canterbury DHB.

This is a permanent, part-time opportunity (0.8FTE/32hr per week) for a registered physiotherapist to join our team. Days and hours are negotiable across Monday - Friday. Although this position is based at Hillmorton, we also offer services at The Princess Margaret Hospital and the successful applicant may also be required to work at this site.

Our Culture: What matters to us

Ko ngā tāngata, te mātua mahi
Putting people at the heart of all we do

Health is ultimately all about people. What's important around here is the way we care for and respect others, the responsibility taken for delivering outcomes, and going about our work with integrity.
