Physiotherapists 

 
     

Physiotherapy.jpeg Physiotherapy services are well established throughout the Auckland District Health Board (ADHB). Being one of the largest District Health Boards in New Zealand, Physiotherapists have the opportunity to gain experience in a wide variety of interesting and challenging specialty services. These include Child Health, Cardiac, Surgical, Vascular, Respiratory, Orthopaedics, Intensive Care, Rheumatology, Pain Service, Neurology and Neurosurgery, Medical, Musculoskeletal and Respiratory Outpatients, Older Peoples Health, Transplant Service, Rehabilitation (Rehab Plus), Women’s Health, and Community Services (Adults – Home Health Care and Paediatrics – Community Child Development Service). 
  
Auckland City Hospital offers staff a range of experience, enabling staff of levels of skill and experience to work in different specialty services. More experienced staff may also specialise in their areas of expertise. Auckland City Hospital is a teaching hospital with University links, and Physiotherapy staff are involved in supervising students, post-graduate education and collaborative audit and research. Support is provided to staff from a large group of experienced clinicians, many recognised as national leaders in their clinical specialty. There is a strong emphasis on continuing professional development, including extensive in-service programmes, professional supervision, peer review and a regular performance appraisal system.

Rehab Plus is a stand alone facility providing multidisciplinary inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation service for clients that have sustained a stroke, traumatic brain injury, other neurological conditions, amputations, multitrauma, other orthopaedic injuries and serious injury claimants from 18 to 65 years. Assessment services also include Mobility Solutions Team, offering the opportunity to work in wheelchairs and seating, and Directions Team, offering ACC needs assessment. 
  
Physiotherapists are also integral team members across the Starship Community. Starship Community provides services to children who experience disability and developmental challenges and multi-disciplinary well-child services. At A+ Links Home Health Care Team, they provide a physiotherapy assessment, advice and rehabilitation service to adults in their own homes or community settings.  
 
To work in New Zealand, Physiotherapists must have registration with the Physiotherapy Board of New Zealand and from 2006 will have to provide evidence of continuing professional development. ADHB is committed to assisting staff in this process.
