Profile

I graduated in Medicine in Aberdeen, Scotland in 1986, then went on to complete my GP training there in 1990.
 
I first came to New Zealand after that for my "one year overseas work experience" and have been here ever since. I worked in Waikato and Tokanui Hospitals initially, then moved up to Auckland in 1995. I have since worked part time in General Practice in Mt Albert, Pt Chevalier and joined 575 Mt Eden as a long term locum in 2006. I have had post graduate training in Family Planning, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Community Paediatrics and Homoeopathy and became a Fellow of the NZ College of General Practitioners in 2001. I was also a member of the Board of Allergy New Zealand several years ago.  I am interested in providing well balanced medical care to all age ranges and groups.
 
I eventually became an official NZ Citizen in 2011when I realised that I did intend to remain here. I am married with 3 children and spend my spare time in my garden, tending to my chooks, fruit trees or veges!

Registration Date

6 December 1990

Vocationally Registered

Yes (What's this?)

The term "vocational registration" indicates that this doctor has done some additional years of further study and has passed comprehensive examinations set by the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners. In addition to these examinations she/he has committed to an ongoing programme of study to keep up to date with the advances in general practice. His/her participation in this study programme is audited. Passing the examinations and the commitment to the study programme confers on this doctor the status of "specialist" in general practice, and is your assurance that this doctor is practicing to a high standard.

Doctors who are not vocationally registered can currently work in general practice as long as they are under the supervision of a vocationally registered general practitioner. The Medical Council of New Zealand would like all doctors who work in general practice to attain vocational registration and many doctors who are not vocationally registered are currently working towards achieving this qualification.
