Dr Andrew Verpoorten

Dr Andrew Verpoorten

I'm a British-trained General Practitioner,

I gained my primary MBBCh from Cardiff University in 2005. Following specialist training I qualified as a Member of the Royal college of General Practitioners (MRCGP) in 2010 and then worked as a GP locum around South Wales for 18 months prior to coming to New Zealand with my wife in early 2012. We have enjoyed setting up home in Christchurch, deciding to settle here after travelling back in 2004 as students.


Outside of work, I have many interests - being a Welsh lad rugby is up on the list, I also enjoy golf and taking advantage of the beautiful surroundings of Canterbury with its walks and easy access to all year round outdoor activities.
