DR COLIN WAUGH

Colin is from Ireland, where he trained and qualified before coming to New Zealand in 2000. He met his partner, Sarah, here and they then lived in Ireland and London before returning to Christchurch with their young family in 2006. He completed his New Zealand GP Fellowship in 2010. Colin has broad experience and qualifications in hospital medicine, emergency medicine and psychiatry. His interests are geriatrics, paediatrics and general medicine. He loves being a GP because of the privilege of getting to know the whole person and their family, together with using a more patient-centred approach to healthcare. His interests are music, sports, travel  and spending time with his wife and three young children. He works five days a week, which includes two half days where he is visiting rest home patients.
