Dr Alexander Leslie
MB ChB 2010 Otago; FRNZCGP 2019
I am a newly awarded Fellow of the Royal College of GPs having completed training in the Bay of Plenty area in 2018. Prior to GP training I worked in a variety of specialities and hospitals around New Zealand and Australia, including as a General Surgery and Paediatric doctor at Tauranga Hospital and as an Emergency doctor in rural Northern Territory.
Alongside GP I work at a local Urgent Care clinic and as a Police Medical Officer. My interests are children’s health, men’s health, and acute medicine.
I grew up on a farm in rural Manawatu and moved to Mount Maunganui with my wife in 2012. We enjoy travelling and now have two kids under three. When I’m not wrangling kids I enjoy getting outdoors on board / bike / foot and flying Cessna light aircraft

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.
