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.


Did you know....We now offer telephone appointments

We can now offer GP appointments face to face or by telephone. The cost of the appointment is the same regardless of which option you choose.
