It is with sadness but excitement that we farewell Dr Karin Burcher who leaves us to go on maternity leave as she is soon to welcome her 3rd child. we look forward to hearing of the new arrival and we hope that down the track she will return to us on a part time basis. In the interim Dr Erin Henare, our Registrar, will look after Dr Burcher’s patients.
We have recently recruited two more GP’s and look forward to introducing them to you once they have arrived and settled in. We continue to appreciate your understanding while we go through the recruitment process. Unfortunately a worldwide shortage of GP’s makes it increasingly difficult to attract Doctors to Masterton both from within NZ and from overseas.
Just a reminder that the Youth Clinic is closed for the school holidays and will reopen on Monday 10th October. We ask patients to please contact their own medical centres during this time.
