Dr Alexander Leslie
MB ChB 2010 Otago; FRNZCGP 2019
I am a newly awarded Fellow of the Royal College of GPs having completed training in the Bay of Plenty area in 2018. Prior to GP training I worked in a variety of specialities and hospitals around New Zealand and Australia, including as a General Surgery and Paediatric doctor at Tauranga Hospital and as an Emergency doctor in rural Northern Territory.
Alongside GP I work at a local Urgent Care clinic and as a Police Medical Officer. My interests are children’s health, men’s health, and acute medicine.
I grew up on a farm in rural Manawatu and moved to Mount Maunganui with my wife in 2012. We enjoy travelling and now have two kids under three. When I’m not wrangling kids I enjoy getting outdoors on board / bike / foot and flying Cessna light aircraft
