Dr Dave Pickett

David-Pickett-HeadshotFRNZCGP, DipObs.

Director and GP.

I studied Microbiology and then Medicine at Otago University. After further training I gained a diploma in Obstetrics and Gynaecology.  I have over 25 years experience as a GP in Wellington and am interested in people from all walks of life and all ages.  My work as a GP is divided between General Practice in Courtenay Place and aged residential care facilities in Newtown with a special interest in Palliative and Dementia care.  Specifically a decade association with Te Hopai Hospital and Home and also more recently Ultimate Care Mt Victoria.  Outside of work I am a keen golfer and surprisingly still improving.

 

Dr Rebecca Rowe

Rebecca-Rowe-HeadshotFRNZCGP(Otago 1996), DTMH(London 2003), Dip Family Planning (UK)

I graduated from Otago Medical School in 1996 and whilst living in London I completed diplomas in Tropical Medicine and family planning. This study extended my interest in HIV and sexual health particularly amongst the adolescent population. It enabled me to gain rich experience in these areas both in the UK and New Zealand.

I am married with two children one now at college and one still at primary school. When not working I enjoy outdoor adventures with family and friends, travel (when able!), reading, the arts and all things creative.

Dr Debbie Taylor

Debbie-Taylor-HeadshotMBBS MRCP FRNZCGP

I am originally from the UK, where I trained and after working for a number of years in internal medicine in the UK and then Australia, I settled in Wellington in 2010, completing my GP Fellowship in 2014.

I originally specialised in geriatrics so I especially enjoy looking after older adults.

Outside of work I have two primary aged children who keep me busy.

Dr Frances Butler

MBChB PGDig OMG

Having graduated from Otago Medical School in 2011 I have worked in various specialty departments across hospital medicine, before undertaking General Practice training three years ago. I was attracted into the specialty by the variety within our scope of practice and being able to form relationships with those that we have contact with.

Originally from Hawkes Bay, I had been working there prior to my move to Wellington with my husband early 2020. Wellington has so far been a welcoming community with a lot of vibrancy and culture that I am looking forward to experiencing during my time living here.

Dr Hui Wang

MBChB, PGDipOMG, PGDipTravMed (Dist), FRNZCGP

I graduated from Otago Medical School in 2010 and have been a GP and travel medicine doctor in Palmerston North for the last few years. Prior to working as a GP I enjoyed working in a wide variety of hospital specialties including abroad as a cruise ship physician. My husband and I moved to Wellington Dec 2019 with our toddler and baby which keeps us very busy. I look forward to meeting and helping the people of Wellington and your families.
