Te whiwhinga mahi | The Opportunity
In 2019 the Ministry of Health led a process, codesigned with consumers, to hear directly from New Zealand men and women affected by surgical mesh. The resulting report, Hearing and responding to the stories of survivors of surgical mesh: Ngā kōrero a ngā mōrehu – he urupare, highlighted the severity of the harm and the impact on the lives of those who experience complications from surgical mesh.
We are excited to be recruiting Clinical Nurse Specialists to a new service for Te Whatu Ora that specialises in the treatment and care of women with complications associated with surgical mesh that has been used to treat Stress Incontinence and Pelvic Organ Prolapse.
This is a national service delivered in two hubs: one Christchurch and one in Auckland. This role requires both direct care delivery and clinical support to other health professionals in the delivery of health care management of consumers across the continuum of health care e.g., primary, and secondary sector.

We are working towards a system that better meets the complex demands of a growing population, addresses the persistent inequalities experienced by Māori and ensures greater access, experience and outcomes for those traditionally not well served by the system – Māori, Pacific and Disabled People.
