I’m a paediatric registrar. I moved back to Hawkes Bay last year after a stint doing ED in Wellington. Hawkes Bay is where I started out as a pgy1 and a delegate four and a half years ago.
I’ve always been a firm believer that if we want to do our jobs to the best of our ability, we need to take care of ourselves and therefore each other. We are so fortunate that we have the support of a union that has a strong voice and the impact to ensure we can work safely and well, with access to training that we need to provide world class health care.
I’m passionate that our job is more than just the list of tasks and acute care we work through each day, and believe that as leaders within the health sector we all have a responsibility to try and understand and improve the health system we work (and live!) in, even from early in our careers.
I look forward to meeting and working with some of you over the coming year, and hope you’ll be in touch.
