Is there an "agency technician" scene in New Zealand, then?
- not sure what this is - is it like a recruitment agency? our company engaged with quite a few, but they so far can't find any skilled experienced biomed in NZ
What's the age limit? - i'm not sure as well. but here is the link to work visa https://www.immigration.govt.nz/new...about-visa/accredited-employer-work-visa
What's the score re: visas?
(Asking for a friend)
and i think there's a condition there for visa to have a minimum 30 hours work a week.
How is it in NZ ... are in-house biomeds directly employed by the government hospitals (Health Boards, whatever)? Who looks after the small government hospitals and clinics?
almost all Gov Hosp in nz employed their own biomed and they look after the satelite sites clinics rest home etc
Is much use made of service contractors?
yes a lot in place for both gov and private - mostly theater related device stryker, erbe, ge etc
Are there many private hospitals (and clinics)? Do they have their own biomeds?
yes there's a lot private hospital - southern cross, evolution group etc, and they usee service contract for their biomedical services and we are one of them. And this pandermic have accelerated the growth of these hospitals and clinics that we need more more biomeds. Issues is we have no one in the country..
