Dr Azatul Zainol- GP
I am originally from Malaysia and I moved to New Zealand in 2004. I graduated from Wellington School of Medicine, University of Otago and I worked in various hospital specialties both in Christchurch Hospital and Rotorua hospital before joining the GP training programme. I am currently working towards getting Fellowship of the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners
I am married to a fellow GP and we have two beautiful children. We have loved calling Cambridge home since we moved here in 2018.
I have special interest in child health and the management of chronic diseases. I believe in partnering and building trust with patients to improve their healthcare.
Dr Zainol works Monday to Thursday.
Dr Christina Benson - GP
BSc (Hons), MBChB, MRCGP (UK), DFFP, FRNZCGP
I was born and brought up in Scotland, completed my first degree in Physiology from the University of St Andrews and then went on to study Medicine at the University of Dundee graduating in 1999. In 2003 I completed my GP training and gained membership to the Royal College of General Practitioners. I have since then continued to work as a GP both in the UK and New Zealand. My family and I first came to New Zealand in 2007, where we lived and worked in Hawkes Bay. We returned to the UK in 2011 but quickly concluded that New Zealand had left a lasting impression and was the best place to live and bring up our family. In 2017 we returned to the Waikato and have resided in Cambridge ever since. My husband Drew is Medical Director for Chronic Conditions and Cancer Medicine at Waikato Hospital, and we have 2 children who keep us very busy. My special areas of interest are, Women’s Health, in particular Family Planning - including IUD insertions and Mental Health.
I feel that as GPs we are very privileged to know our patients and their families for many years and that the care we provide must always be of the highest standard. It is important that the care provided should be holistic in nature considering all aspects of patients and their family’s needs.
Dr Benson is working Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings.
