MB BS 1995 Lond; FRNZCGP 2013


Originally from England, I qualified from University College London in 1995. I attained membership of the Royal College of General Practice in 2002 and fellowship of the Royal New Zealand College of General Practice in 2012. As part of my training to become a GP, I worked in the hospital system in both England and Australia. I joined the team here in 2006 and became a partner in 2008.

I enjoy all aspects of general practice, especially the diversity that this brings, including the management of chronic conditions e.g diabetes, hypertension, mental health, women’s and children’s health.

I came to New Zealand with my husband and eldest child Angus in 2002. In 2004 I had my youngest child Emma. I love spending time with my family, going for runs with my dog, and playing squash.

Registration Date

11 December 2003

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.
