Private Service, Gastroenterology & Hepatology (Liver), Internal Medicine



Rachael Harry is a consultant hepatologist, specializing only in liver disease.

Rachael is one of four consultant hepatologists working on the New Zealand Liver Transplant Unit at Auckland Hospital looking after people with all types of liver disease including those who need assessment for and those who have undergone liver transplantation. Rachael is the only specialist who works in New Zealand with a private practice dedicated only to patients with liver disease.

Rachael has a wealth of experience in managing all kinds of liver diseases in adults as well as an interest in looking after adolescents and young adults in the adult health care setting.

Rachael has developed a particular interest in autoimmune liver disease for which she set up a dedicated clinic at Auckland Hospital which has one of the largest experiences in the country of these conditions.

Before moving to New Zealand in 2003, Rachael was trained at Kings College Hospital in London, one of the largest liver centres in Europe and also has worked as a consultant hepatologist in Manchester, UK  looking after large numbers of patients with alcohol related disease and viral hepatitis.

Rachael has worked with people with all types of liver disease for over 20 years and is confident in managing all types of liver problems, from the most serious to the more straightforward. She has a patient centred, collaborative approach to her practice and often receives positive feedback from patients and colleagues for her work.

Rachael’s private consulting rooms are at the MacMurray Digestive Diseases and Endoscopy Centre in Remuera. She is happy to see anyone who needs an opinion regarding their liver health. Rachael is happy to take referrals from medical practitioners or direct from patients themselves and contact is made through the reception staff at the MacMurrary Centre. 

Rachael has a busy private practice and often there will be a waiting list to see her. If you consider your, or your patient's, referral to be urgent please inform the reception staff so that she can do her best to see all referrals in a reasonable time frame.

What is Hepatology?

Hepatology is the study of diseases of the liver. Although I trained as a gastroenterologist and general physician, I have subsequently specialised further and now only work in hepatology. 

A hepatologist is a doctor specialising in the field of medicine which involves diseases of the liver. 


Referral Expectations

I am happy to accept referrals from any medical practitioners and also to see patients who wish to refer themselves with any concerns about their liver health.

I am happy to provide reports for immigration regarding all aspects of liver disease including viral hepatitis and abnormal liver function tests.


Charges will be advised by the adminstration team at MacMurray on enquiry.

Rachael generally works on a Monday in private practice although other times may sometimes be available.
