My name is Alex Hedley and I’m currently working as PGY2 at Hawke’s Bay Hospital. I am originally from the small northern Hawke’s Bay town of Wairoa.
I joined the RDA as a trainee intern because I wanted to be familiar with the conditions of employment from day one on the job. Since then I have been involved in enforcing the MECA interpretation within our DHB with good effect so far.
Within medicine, my interests lie in Surgery, Radiology and Emergency Medicine. I am currently gaining further experience in these areas to aid my decision making for my future career.
I have always been involved with representation and advocacy roles during my medical training and my time in the medical workforce. I have also always been a strong supporter of the union movement and the rights of employees in all industries. I look forward to continuing this work representing members from the significant number of regional centres around New Zealand. Feel free to contact me if you have any specific issues or concerns to discuss.
