John has been involved in primary health care/general practice for 31 years. 

Initially as a large health center owner/ principal partner but more latterly as a self- employed locum/sessional Doctor.

For the past 12 years John has branched out into emergency medicine and hold a regular part time position at the Hutt Hospital Emergency Department. 

His interests include minor surgery musculoskeletal medicine, management of acute trauma, and the general practice/emergency interface and timely delivery of acute care.
