Why choose to become a part of our team?

Pihanga Health is a Monday to Friday practice with after-hours needs being handled by Ka Ora Telecare phone triage.

We are a teaching practice that encourages ongoing learning at all levels, but most of all we love creative ideas for delivering high quality health services that put our patients at the centre of their care, and genuinely improves their health and wellbeing.

Everyone gets an equal voice in designing services for the practice. Working with Pihanga Health is an opportunity to be part of our proactive and innovative rural GP practice who care for a wide and diverse patient population. 

We pride ourselves on providing a working environment where everyone can enjoy job satisfaction and a work-life balance. 

We acknowledge and honour te Tiriti o Waitangi in our daily work and are committed to building cultural capability at Pihanga Health. Your understanding of tikanga māori and/or te reo māori will be greatly welcomed.  Some of our staff live in Taupō and commute to work, others live at the southern end of the lake which gives them an unique opportunity to be a part of Southern Lakes communities.

We are a not-for-profit charity run by a Board of Trustees.

We are on the hunt for that special Pharmacist Prescriber to join our team

We are on the hunt for a Pharmacist Prescriber to join our motivated and supportive team.

This is a new opportunity to be part of our proactive and innovative rural primary care practice which cares for a wide and diverse patient population. 

We are a teaching practice that encourages ongoing learning at all levels.  We love creative ideas for delivering high quality health care that meet our patient’s needs.  We are part of a community and work with the community to improve health and wellness for all.

Flexibility, flexibility, flexibility – that’s what we’re offering!  The role is 40hrs per week (1.0FTE) but can be done as a hybrid role (a combination of remote and in practice), as a job share or full time in our practice if you prefer. 

Wherever you’re working from you’ll be an integral part of our practice and interdisciplinary care team.  Direct interaction with patients and their whānau will be the norm and your focus will be to ensure that the medicines prescribed help them get better and stay well. 

You will be naturally collaborative, open and inquisitive to different ideas and a great communicator who can simplify the complex.  You will be culturally responsive, think holistically and be driven by a clear desire to pursue Māori health gain.

If you are a qualified pharmacist registered in NZ without restrictions in the Pharmacist Prescriber scope of practice and hold a current annual practicing certificate, then we are keen to hear from you.  Being a fluent te reo Māori speaker or having demonstrated experience in achieving equitable outcomes for patients will just increase our interest further. 

This is currently a fixed term role from 1st June 2024 to 31 July 2025. 

You must be fully vaccinated against COVID 19 to work at Pihanga Health.

To apply please send your CV to:  Manager, Pihanga Health, PO Box 58 Turangi

We are on the hunt for that special Registered Nurse to join our team

We are looking for someone who has 5+ years of experience in a general practice or community setting. Ideally, you will be an experienced practice nurse working at a senior level who is ultimately keen and capable to take on a Nurse Lead role in the future – but most of all we want an RN with an enthusiasm for nursing in a close-knit community, a ‘can do’ team based attitude and a willingness to grow and learn new skills and gain higher qualifications.

If you are an authorised vaccinator and/or smear taker we see that as a bonus.  Being a fluent te reo Māori speaker, living at the southern end of the lake or having demonstrated experience in achieving equitable outcomes for patients will just increase our interest in you.  A high level of computer and technology literacy is a must, as are strong verbal and written communication skills.  

This is a permanent role with up to 5 days/40 hours per week available by negotiation and open to New Zealand registered nurses with the right to work in NZ and with a current NZ APC.

You must be fully vaccinated against COVID 19 to work at Pihanga Health.

To apply please send your CV to:  Manager, Pihanga Health, PO Box 58 Turangi

or email manager@pihanga.co.nz
