MB ChB 2004 Otago; FRNZCGP 2012


Kia ora, my name is William but most people call me willy. I was born and bred here in Tauranga, and I take great privilege in calling Pāpāmoa my home. I graduated from Otago Medical School in 2004, spending the next 5 years in the hospital system. In 2009, I deciding to leave the hospital for a life of work in the community, choosing to undertake vocational training as both a GP and a Urgent care physician.

I was awarded fellowship to the Royal New Zealand College of General Practice in 2012, and am currently in the final stages to then be considered for fellowship to the Royal New Zealand College of Urgent Care.

I enjoy all aspects of both General Practice and Urgent Care medicine, but have a special interest in the diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer, including the use of Dermoscopy and Local Flap Surgery.

I have completed a number of the post graduate training courses offered through the Skin cancer college of Australasia, and in 2014 became an accredited skin cancer doctor, as well as achieving advanced accreditation with the Western BOP PHO minor surgery scheme. I am also an affiliated provider for Southern Cross for skin cancer(* – only from skinspots).

I also have a special interest in sports and musculoskeletal medicine, having completed the Post Graduate Diploma in Sports Medicine in 2014. In particular, I have a keen interest in the diagnosis and treatment of common joint and tendon injuries, as well as the management of simple fractures.
