GPs awarded fellowships
Four southern GPs have been formally awarded fellowships of the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners.
The fellowship is the professional recognition that a doctor has trained and qualified to be a specialist in general practice.
Invercargill GPs Dr Narasimha Chintaginjala, Dr Tabitha Luecker, and Dr N. Shanmugalingam, and Balclutha GP Dr Janice Sargent were awarded the fellowships at a ceremony in Christchurch on Saturday.
College president Dr Tim Malloy said 272 fellowships had been awarded this year, compared with 153 last year.
