Dr Fiona Morrison
MB ChB 1996 Glasgow; FRNZCGP 2014
We are delighted to welcome Dr Fiona Morrison to Amity Health Centre. She is a very experienced GP who is working to fill the gaps left by Susie Lawless's leave and Phil White's reduction in hours. Fiona was born, raised and educated in Glasgow, Scotland where she qualified as a doctor in 1996. After spending several years working in hospitals in Aberdeen, she undertook further training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in Perthshire before completing her training as a GP. Fiona and her Kiwi husband moved to New Zealand in 2001, settling in the Bay of Plenty until 2015 when they relocated to Dunedin with their young family. Fiona was delighted to join the team at Amity in May 2018, sharing the practice vision of providing excellent, patient-centred care. She loves the variety of general practice and is particularly keen on developing strong relationships with her patients so that they can work together on achieving the patient's health goals. She has an interest in improving health literacy and in optimising the practice team. Fiona is currently on the board of the Otago branch of the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners. Outside work, she spends most of her time enjoying the happy chaos of living on a lifestyle block with her boys, dogs, sheep and chickens.

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.
