Our Purpose: Why we do it

When you work with the Canterbury District Health Board, you're part of something very special. We plan, fund and deliver health services to the almost 600,000 New Zealanders that live in the Canterbury region. Our primary goal is to put people at the heart of everything we do.

The Diabetes Centre is seeking experienced NZ Registered Dietitians to join their multi-disciplinary team.

This exciting and challenging role will capitalise on your passion for education as well as your ability to enthuse your patients and motivate real behaviour change.
