Our catchment area encompasses Invercargill City, Queenstown - Lakes District, Gore, rural Southland, Clutha, Central Otago, Maniototo, Waitaki District and Dunedin City.

These services are managed and delivered through our own facilities and staff, collectively known as the 'Provider Arm'.

This funding is distributed and monitored by our 'Planning and Funding Team' to providers such as Primary Health Organisations (general practices), pharmacies, laboratories, aged residential care facilities, Pacific Island and Maori Health providers, non-governmental mental health services, rural hospitals and primary maternity facilities.

Our statutory purpose is to:

  • reduce health outcome disparities
  • manage national strategies and implementation plans
  • develop and implement strategies for the specific health needs of our local population.

Given the broad scope of our services, we offer a huge range of career opportunities. As well as health professionals we employ management and administration professionals, cleaners, maintenance and security staff, food workers, accountants, IT professionals, telephonists, orderlies, human resources and communications/marketing staff – the list is endless.
