Dr Jon Scott
MB ChB 1986 Lpool; DRCOG 1994; FRNZCGP 2004
I trained in Liverpool (UK), completing my GP training in Kidderminster. I travelled to NZ and Australia for a working holiday with my wife in 1990. We returned to the UK where I studied and gained my diploma in Obs and Gynae. We came back to NZ, with our 3 young children, initially in Palmerston North and have been practicing in Oamaru since 1995. I sat the Fellowship of General Practice in 2004. I have a special interest in Paediatrics, Family Planning and Obstetrics and Gynaecology. I also enjoy Minor Surgery. My hobbies include Musical Theatre in Oamaru and Marathons, especially mountain running.

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.
