Maternity Unit Manager – New Contemporary Rural Service
The Lachlan (Parkes & Forbes) Maternity Service was launched in 2021 and provides a full range of contemporary care models after considerable consultation with the community. The service’s goal to provide culturally appropriate and women-centred care, and is at the forefront of maternity service delivery in regional Australia.

This is a senior level position most suited to an experienced clinical leader who wants to advance their career and lead positive change for rural health services. As a new service you will be pivotal in developing and shaping the service and being a positive and helpful leader for your team.

This is truly a role where you will challenge yourself, make an impact and shape the future of rural maternity services.
You’ll also be part of a broader network of MUMs and CNCs from our District who are well connected and support each other professionally, birthing over 3200 babies each year. Opportunities for training and development are plentiful and you will be encouraged to participate in our districts leadership forums and mentoring programs.
As well as being a fulfilling and rewarding role, you will be well positioned to further progress your career within the district, which employs over 7700 people.
