Dr Will Parkyn

Will is our new GP registrar.

He has moved here with his wife and four young children and is considering staying on permanently. He has been drawn to the district by the people and the exciting variety of work here.

He has particular interests in Woman's and Children's Health, Prehospital and Emergency Medicine, and of course Rural General Practice.

Will graduated from Otago School of Medicine in 2014 with a MBChB before being employed in Nelson and Blenheim hospitals. He has experience in a variety of specialties including General Medicine and Surgery, Psychiatry, Paediatrics, Older Peoples Health, and Anaesthetics. He has also spent a further year training (and working) in Women's Health and completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Obstetrics and Medical Gynaecology (with Merit), and another year in an Emergency Department completing a Post Graduate Certificate in Emergency Medicine.

In his spare time he enjoys hanging out with his family, exploring nature and watching Netflix.
