Invercargill gives you everything you’d want from a city hospital, with a modern work environment, interesting work and a range of specialties, but there’s a small hospital with a collegial feel to it. You’ll be on first-name terms with all the staff, including the doctors.

Invercargill is a lovely city for families, with affordable housing and excellent education and adventure opportunities. Surrounded by beautiful scenery many of New Zealand’s major tourist destinations, (ski fields, national parks, vineyards) and hidden treasures are on Southlands doorstep.
