Dr Jens-Peter Link
State Exam Med 1998 Goettingen; FRNZCGP 2011
I am a German trained GP and immigrated to New Zealand with my wife and daughter in 2007.
Following my medical studies I undertook extensive training and work in Germany in a variety of medical fields. In order to gain the best and widest possible qualification for becoming a GP, I worked in General Medicine, Internal Medicine, Rheumatology, Diabetology, General Surgery, Trauma Surgery, Emergency Medicine, Orthopaedic Surgery, Psychiatry and General Practice.
Following our immigration to New Zealand I initially worked as a doctor in Hāwera Hospital for some years. During this time I looked after General Medical inpatients (including Geriatric Medicine, Palliative Care) as well as patients in the Emergency Department.
Since then I have gained New Zealand GP qualification by becoming a Fellow of the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners some years ago. For the past 5 years I have worked as a full time GP on Waiheke Island.
I am passionate about General Practice and look forward to caring for patients in a personal, caring and trustful environment for many years to come.
I hope to be able to continue and create long standing patient-doctor relationships, which will enable me to treat, advise and guide patients through the complete spectrum of healthcare needs in their lives.
I strongly believe in a team approach as well as a holistic approach to wellbeing and enjoy cooperating and interacting with the wide spectrum of healthcare providers in the community.
My special interests are General/Internal Medicine, Older Peoples Health, Chronic Care Management, Diabetes Management, Nutritional Medicine, Clinician Performed Ultrasound as well as Ear Acupuncture.

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.
