Dr Tracy Ball
MB ChB 1995 Lpool; MRCGP 2002; FRNZCGP 2014
I have been working in Tauranga as a GP since 2004 following the move to NZ with my husband.
I trained at the University of Liverpool and I also completed my vocational training In General Practice in the UK. I gained membership of the Royal College of General Practitioners, and I am Fellow of the New Zealand College of General Practitioners. I also hold a diploma in Family Planning.
I enjoy all aspects of General Practice , especially womens health and paediatrics. When not seeing patients, you’ll find me at the beach with my husband and our two sons, or out cycling around the beautiful bay.

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.
