    I was wondering if anyone could tell me what Whangarei is like to live in? Are there good schools? What shopping facilities are there?

    Does anyone work in Whangarei hospital? I am a midwife and considering working there.

    Any other information would be gratefully received?

    I live 2 hours north of Whangarei, which makes it my closest city. Personally I hate big cities and Whangarei is 'just right' in terms of size. I have worked and trained at Whg hospital, its the main hospital for northland, and is a great place to work. The delivery unit is always crying out for staff There is an attached postnatal/antenatal ward and a SCBU.
    Any complicated births get booked or transferred to Whg from the outer lying smaller, rural hospitals (like the one I work at).
