Introducing Our Staff

We encourage you to develop a relationship with one doctor in the interest of continuity of care.

Medical Students:

Durham Health is proud to be a teaching practice and on occasion have medical students sitting in with a Doctor.  You will always be informed if this is the case and you have the right to request their removal from your consult. 

GP Registrars:

This practice has been accredited by the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners as a teaching practice for GP registrars. GP Registrars are doctors who have already completed at least 8 years of medical training and are going on to specialise in general practice. If you decide to consult with the registrar you are making an important contribution to the education of NZ doctors and we appreciate your support.

Our current Registrar is Dr Joanna Simpson she is starting on 1st August 2022
