June is the month where our registrars rotate to their new practice. We have sadly farewelled Dr Rose Longhurst and now warmly welcome Dr Ashley (Ash) Ellis. Ash is from the Bay of Plenty and has kindly written me a blurb as means of introduction.
Ko Tarawera te Maunga, Ko Tarawera te Awa, Ko Te Arawa te waka, Ko Ngāti Rangitihi tōku hapū, Ko Ashley Ellis tōku ingoa, Nō Tauranga ahau.
My name is Ash, I am a graduate of the University of Auckland Medical School and have recently begun further training in General Practice. I grew up in Whakatane and Tauranga and is a delight to return home and practice in the wider Bay of Plenty. In my spare time I can be found in the surf, on the ski fields or cycling in the forests.
