Dr. Richard Jamieson
FRNZCGP, BHB, MB, Ch.B, Dip. Paed (Auckland)
Richard feels proud and enormously blessed to be part of this wonderful team at The Hastings Health Centre. He has lived in Hawkes Bay since 2003; having shifted down here to live where his wife grew up; after several years doing hospital medicine in Auckland and a year working (sort of) in London. They have managed to raise four wonderful children since then, and Hastings is very much home for them now. They absolutely love it here, and reckon this is just about the best place in the world they could possibly be.
They love the sunshine and all of the outdoor leisure activities that the Bay has on their doorstep. Richard particularly enjoys getting out to the surf and playing with the kids at Waimarama beach, trekking up and down the Hawkes Bay mountain bike trails, hacking his way hopelessly around the golf course, supporting his beloved Black Caps at McLean Park, and pretending he is still young and fit enough to handle his snowboard. And yet instead he still seems to spend most of his spare time chauffeuring kids around to further their social lives.
Of course the food, wine, and coffee in Hawkes Bay is world class, if you don’t believe him then he has some places to send you to immediately.
Richard is also very pleased to be a member at Hastings Baptist Church which he attends with his family.
