Consultant Psychiatrist Forensic Mental Health Services Waitemata District Health Board
The Auckland Regional Forensic Psychiatry Service, or the Mason Clinic as it is often known, is the largest Forensic Mental Health Service in New Zealand.
We serve the four northern District Health Boards including all courts in the northern region and five prisons totaling approximately 3500 inmates.
We deliver a comprehensive range of Forensic Mental Health Services, including secure inpatient acute and rehabilitation services which connect to community rehabilitation services, services for intellectually disabled offenders, culture specific programmes for Maori and Pacific people, court liaison and prison mental health services.
This includes a regional service to Northland Region Corrections Facility at Ngawha in Northland. The Mason Clinic in Auckland has 116 inpatient beds of which 12 are for intellectually disabled people with forensic needs.
The Clinic is in a phase of incremental expansion with the building of new facilities to support contemporary models of forensic mental health care with a greater focus on rehabilitation and reintegration without the use of restrictive interventions, and where services are integrated across the care continuum of security needs.
Our vision, mission and values are inclusive, founded on a therapeutic commitment to service users, their family and the community.
We are committed to both process, and outcome quality, best evidence based practice, a management environment that is respectful of all staff and an on-going learning environment.
If you have a strong commitment to providing high quality Forensic Mental Health care in an innovative and research informed multidisciplinary service and have an appropriate specialist qualification and experience in Forensic Psychiatry, we would like to hear from you.
Candidates with experience or interest in intellectual and / or developmental disabilities are encouraged to apply.
