Why work anywhere else - our stories

“What would attract someone to this role is the day to day support that you get from within this team and the wider community of health professionals and also the ability to work autonomously, thinking on your feet and making good clinical decisions while recognizing our resources.” 
Marion Terry, Clinical Coordinator Community Mental Health Wairoa

“My passion for the job stems from the unpredictable nature of the work and having to extend yourself outside of your comfort zone. Many learning opportunities with unique challenges present themselves on a regular basis. We have a close knit supportive team and always help each other out.“  
James Gore, Community Mental Health Nurse Wairoa

“Our Hawke’s Bay District Health Board is all about ‘Health with Heart’; I don’t think you will find anywhere with more heart than Wairoa.” 
Sam McKeown, Nurse, Wairoa Acute Ward
