Every moment matters is not only our vision, it is our commitment to enhance the health and independence of the people of South Canterbury. We do things differently at the SCDHB, we believe extraordinary leadership can emerge from anywhere in our workforce, and the best ideas tend to come from staff closest to our patients and our patients themselves.

We are a small MIT team seeking to recruit a Medical Imaging Technologist to join our X-Ray and CT roster.  Preference is for a Technologist with CT experience but applications for X-Ray only are encouraged.
