The Opportunity
MidCentral operates an integrated model of clinical service delivery.

The eating disorder roles will sit in the Manawatu Locality (Palmerston North and Feilding catchment area) but may also provide some services across the rohe. The eating disorder services will be delivered in line with national and international evidence based best practice principles.
We are looking for a Clinical Dietitian who is highly motivated, is committed to ensuring culturally responsive care, and is excited by supporting recovery using contemporary practice models. The role will work closely with other professionals in the eating disorder team and with the wider mental health and addiction workforce.
