Dr Rakesh Premkumar

MBBS (UK), BMedSci (UK), PhD (Auckland), FRNZCGP
I graduated from Newcastle upon Tyne medical school in 2004 and hold a MBBS and BMedSci. I have had the pleasure of working in the NHS UK for 2 years. After which I went to Singapore and also had the opportunity to work in various Singaporean Hospitals for a period of 2 years. An opportunity arose to take up a job in Invercargill, New Zealand in 2009 as a surgical registrar and since then I have been working in various New Zealand hospitals in both the South and North Island for a specific time period undertaking my Doctor of Philosophy in the University of Auckland. I realised general practice was my calling when I had a family and the whole encompassing care that general practice provides was truly appealing to me. I entered the RNZCGP training program in the year 2017 and I am in the final hurdle of finishing my fellowship. I enjoy all aspects of general aspects and really look forward to another day the work brings. I work all five days a week and I am accepting patients who would like to have me as their GP. I intend to provide comprehensive care to my patients with regard to both acute and chronic medical conditions. Outside of work I enjoy playing the violin, going for walks and learning to play the Mandalin. I have two young children who keep me busy.
