New GP joining the team! Oct 03 2017 Dr Kirsty Lennon is leaving us at the end of October. Kirsty is passionate about making general practice more effective and has taken up the opportunity to work with Compass Health as a "HealthCare Home" champion, to introduce this concept to GP practices in the Hutt Valley and to further extend this way of working to more practices in the CCDHB district. Raumati Road Surgery is in it's second year of using the HealthCare Home practice model - Kirsty has helped achieve this. While we will miss Kirsty on a day to day basis, we will see her from time to time as a locum and she will continue to help with our HealthCare Home practice development. We thank Kirsty for her years of dedicated service to our practice and to her patients. We welcome Dr Sandra Bennett, who will be taking over the patients that Kirsty looked after. Sandra is a NZ trained GP with many years' experience. She lives locally and has two primary school aged children. We look forward to working with Sandra and having her as part of our team. Sandra will join us in mid October to ensure a smooth handover of care for patients who currently see Kirsty.
