Anyone considering this DHB needs to familiarise themselves with the media coverage - remember, this is the tip of a very ugly iceberg http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11811397 http://www.radionz.co.nz/news/national/323295/health-worker-awarded-$10k-after-dhb's-unfair-dismissal http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11754850 http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/health/84489679/Woman-given-wrong-dose-of-cancer-drugs-at-a-Waikato-hospital http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/health/86350367/patient-dies-after-being-misdiagnosed-at-a-waikato-hopsital They are bad to patients, bad to staff, incompetent and wasteful in their leadership, and employ fake doctors. 07 May 17 star

Would recommend that they sort out the bullying that is far too common.in the workplace at management level.towards the staff. It is spoiling the image of the DHB and making good staff leave. Otherwise there are some good people here. The Mead Center is superb. 12 Sep 16 starstar half

Recent report whitewashes major problems with mental health here. To be avoided at all costs. Derek White is dreaming if he thinks this service makes an effort to retain its staff http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/health/80847292/media-attention-impacts-staff-vacancies-at-henry-bennett-centre 10 Jun 16 star

I've found it an excellent place to work, with very supportive, helpful colleagues. The DHB is a tertiary provider for the region so it's very busy, but they do good work and there's lots of opportunities. 09 May 16 starstarstarstarstar

I suggest anyone thinking about working here spend some time on google looking into the problems that this DHB has, as well as having a look at what's in the media about some of its main figures such as the current CEO. You'll be happier if you just avoid it. 29 Mar 16 star
