- Your energy and ideas are welcome here. We’re designing a new hospital in Dunedin, creating an incredible opportunity to ask questions about how we want to deliver care in decades to come, and change things up.
- Learn with, and from, the best. Our partnerships with the University of Otago, Otago Polytechnic and Southern Institute of Technology mean ongoing education, and links to research, are part of the culture of the health system.
Southland District Health Board is one of the biggest and most diverse employers in the Southern area of New Zealand and works in close partnership with WellSouth Primary Health Network and all our partners in primary care. We cover communities made up of 350,000 people in an area twice the size of Belgium, and our communities are as diverse as the people we employ and the work we offer.
