Dr Victoria Jones
BM BS 2007 Nottm; FRNZCGP 2014
After deciding that my job as a Management Consultant wasn't rewarding enough, I went back to Uni in 2003 to study Medicine. I graduated in England, but the plan was always to move permanently to New Zealand.
In 2010 that dream became a reality and my family moved to Auckland. Quickly realising that I wanted to train as a GP, we left the big smoke and moved to Central Otago where I completed my GP Fellowship. In 2016 we became NZ citizens and moved to Katikati for some culture, surf and sand.
At work I have special interests in Women's Health and Child & Adolescent Health. In my free time, I love throwing a stick for my hyperactive dog, playing tennis, skiing and snowboarding and eating good food.

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.
