This practice has been accredited by the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners as a teaching practice for general practice registrars. GP registrars are doctors who have already completed at least eight years of medical training and are going on to specialise in general practice.
They come to this practice for a six-month period to get practical experience under the supervision of Dr Chris Wong, Dr John Caldwell and Dr Joanna Lang. Our current registrar is Dr Verity Stirling.
Patients may be offered an appointment with the registrar. If you decide to consult with the registrar you are making an important contribution to the education of New Zealand doctors and we appreciate your support. However, the choice to see the registrar is entirely voluntary and you are always free to see your own doctor if you prefer.
