Dr John McAllister
I started at Auckland University to complete Medical Intermediate for Otago Medical School in 1967.
Fortunately, I was selected as a member of the inaugural intake into the University of Auckland School of Medicine in 1968. After graduation at the end of 1973, and then doing the required two years of house surgeon rotations through various medical and surgical "runs" in Greenlane and Auckland hospitals, I left for a period of "OE" in the United Kingdom and road trips through Europe and North Africa. I returned to join the Psychiatry training scheme, and worked in that area of medicine for seven years, before entering General Practice.
I have been at Green Bay Medical Centre since 1982, and was privileged to join the practice set up by the late Dr Bob Hardy and Dr Morag Hardy, who were joined later by Dr John Hilton (also, sadly, now deceased).
I am married to Judy since 1971, and we have two children - Hamish and Melanie.My interests in medicine now centre on the areas in which I have undertaken post-graduate training, namely psychological medicine and the medicine of the elderly.
Please note that I work Monday through to Friday, with Tuesday afternoon being my “administration” half day.
