MB ChB 1987 Otago; FRNZCGP 2014


Helen is a local who always wanted to be a doctor. She thrives on the variety of work that being a GP provides and has been part of the MHC team since 1991. She values the ‘cradle to grave’ aspect of being a family doctor, but especially loves the babies! 

She and her husband spend as much time as possible in Wanaka, where they enjoy boating and skiing with their children.



Registration Date

26 January 1989

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.
