Dr Wright Award Winner

Dr Wright was one of five New Zealand GP’s to be awarded the Presidents Service Medal this year!!! Congratulations!

Dr Wright started his career in Wainuiomata in 1987, and in 2000 was the founding GP of the Waiwhetu Medical Centre, a new iwi-based health service in Lower Hutt. Subsequently, he returned to private practice as a partner at Naenae Medical Centre.

Within the College, he has been a GPEP1 teacher for the last 20 years and a medical educator for the training programme in Wellington during that time, mentoring new generations of GPs as they progressed through their training.

As a respected GP he has served on the Medical Council’s professional conduct committee, retiring this year after 32 years of work. In this role his knowledge and experience has contributed to fair outcomes in conduct hearings of his colleagues.
