We’re providing our service in a new way to ensure you and your whanau remain safe through COVID-19. When you phone or visit the clinic we'll ask if you have any cough, cold, or flu-like symptoms or if you're concerned about COVID-19. This doesn't mean we think you have coronavirus, it's our part in helping keep our community safe and healthy. 

We do COVID-19 testing and our practice is safe to visit

Safety is our priority. We do COVID-19 testing in your car where possible or in an isolation room if an assessment is required. This means there's no additional risk to you when you visit for other medical issues. We have strict infection prevention standards in place.

Thanks for your patience and continued support.

    Dr James Perry


    After qualifying from Birmingham Medical School (UK) I completed my House Officer jobs in Jersey and Bournemouth (UK) before spending some time working in New Zealand (Tauranga Emergency Department). On returning to the UK I joined the Royal Navy as a Medical Officer. Following 3 years’ service as the ships doctor I joined the GP vocational training scheme in Portsmouth and completed this in 2017.

    I have an interest in ENT (ear nose and throat) medicine and musculoskeletal medicine.

    Outside of work I enjoy spending as much time outdoors, be that on the water or in the mountains. My wife, Victoria, and I have 2 young children and are expecting a third. We're both looking forward to moving to New Zealand and are excited about introducing all that New Zealand has to offer to our young family.
