Karen qualified from Cambridge University and St Mary’s Hospital, London in 1988. General practice has always been her ambition and passion in medicine. Karen gained her Membership of the Royal College of General Practitioners (UK) with Distinction in 1992 and was a partner in a successful central London practice for 11 years.
Karen moved with her family to New Zealand in 2004 and has worked at Quaymed since that time. She is a vocationally registered general practitioner who loves the diversity of primary care and believes passionately in screening and evidence based medicine tailored to the individual’s needs. Karen has an interest in chronic disease management- particularly cardiovascular disease and women’s health and health sector management.
Karen has been our Medical Director since 2006 and has overseen the expansion of the clinic to two sites and our achievement of Cornerstone Quality accreditation. Karen works four days a week at Quaymed across both Wynyard and Britomart sites- balancing the demands of an active and busy family with her work as a doctor.
