Dr Grabiel Ng
MB ChB 2002 Otago; FRNZCGP 2011
Grabiel was born in Hong Kong and moved to New Zealand with her family during her primary school years. She attended Diocesan School for Girls and studied Medicine at the University of Otago. After spending a few years as a junior doctor in public hospitals in Auckland and gaining her Diploma in Child Health, Grabiel went to Ireland and worked as a GP in a semi-rural community, where she also obtained the Family Planning Certificate (Irish College of General Practitioners). This turned out to be a very interesting and valuable experience which led her to decide to specialise in General Practice. She came back to New Zealand to complete her vocational training with the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners. Subsequently Grabiel gained a postgraduate Certificate in Primary Skin Cancer Medicine with the University of Queensland. She is fluent in Cantonese and can speak basic Mandarin. Grabiel skis, surfs, runs and plays the piano. She and Jeff have one daughter together.
She is a fellow of the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners.

Yes (What's this?)
The term "vocational registration" indicates that this doctor has done some additional years of further study and has passed comprehensive examinations set by the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners. In addition to these examinations she/he has committed to an ongoing programme of study to keep up to date with the advances in general practice. His/her participation in this study programme is audited. Passing the examinations and the commitment to the study programme confers on this doctor the status of "specialist" in general practice, and is your assurance that this doctor is practicing to a high standard.
Doctors who are not vocationally registered can currently work in general practice as long as they are under the supervision of a vocationally registered general practitioner. The Medical Council of New Zealand would like all doctors who work in general practice to attain vocational registration and many doctors who are not vocationally registered are currently working towards achieving this qualification.
