Dr Richard van Gelder Horgan – General Practitioner

I am Wakefield’s newest addition to the practice.

I am originally from Christchurch, but I did most of my schooling in Rotorua. I am an Otago University graduate – finishing in 2013. I have worked both in Christchurch and Nelson hospitals before choosing general practice.

Outside of medicine, I am married to Nicola, who is also a GP.  We love the outdoors, and aim to spend as much time as possible skiing and tramping – luckily these activities come with less scrapes and bruises than my mountain biking colleagues. I also really enjoy fishing, and hope to one day catch something worth eating.

I am looking forward to becoming part of the Wakefield community.
