The MidCentral District Health Board (MDHB) Sleep Service provides an integrated diagnostic and treatment sleep service for patients with obstructive sleep apnoea. It is part of the MidCentral Health’s multidisciplinary Respiratory Service and the model of care includes both primary and secondary care. It strives to provide innovative and high quality evidence based care.
We are seeking an enthusiastic individual with an interest in patient care and diagnostic testing to join this innovative  service.
