Skills/experience
Having qualified in London I completed General Practice training in Nottingham and then spent 1 year running a 200-bed Mission hospital in Malawi, Central Africa. After another 5 years doing General Practice in Nottingham we emigrated to New Zealand in 1993, spending 5 years as a GP in Wairoa where I also helped to run the local hospital. We moved to Hastings in 1999 and started at Stortford Medical Centre, finally moving our practice into Hastings Health Centre in 2011.

I enjoy all aspects of family medicine with a particular interest in Emergency medicine, Paediatrics and Minor surgery and have been performing vasectomies here in NZ for 12 years. I have been the Medical Advisor to the CPO programme at the local PHO for 5 years. I am deeply committed to the concept that General Practice/Primary Care is the key driving force behind first class health care.

Home life
I am married to Alison who is a nurse at the Day Surgery unit at Hawkes Bay Hospital and we have three children at different stages of their education and development. I love fly-fishing and local rugby.
