Jane Heatherington

Jane Heatherington – Doctor

I was trained in the UK and came to New Zealand for my OE, met my “kiwi hubby” and I am still here 15 years later, with two wonderful little girls who keep me very busy. I have been working at Linwood for the past nine years and enjoy the long term relationships in this practice.

I find I really enjoy the wide scope of work that general practice offers and have special interests in Medical Education, Mental Health, Women’s Health, Dermatology and Palliative Care. My other interests include cycling, running in the Port Hills and swimming in the ocean during the summer months.

I enjoy the outdoors, particularly hiking and skiing. I'm hoping to pick up surfing soon!

I then decided to return to Christchurch where I worked in Christchurch Hospital before entering the General Practice training scheme in 2007. I have been working at Linwood Medical Centre since 2009, and passed my Fellowship examination here. I now have a busy home with three children and I still occasionally enjoy mountain biking and running. I am also interested in coffee and photography.

Originally from Dunedin, I have lived and worked all over New Zealand.

I have a passion for people, their health and well being, and feel very privileged to be working in the world of general practice. I entered medicine with a background in physiotherapy and have special interests and post graduate qualifications in sports medicine, child health, obstetrics and gynaecology.

Outside of work I enjoy all things outdoors including snow-boarding and biking (of any kind), as well as food, friends, and family. My most cherished time is that spent with my partner and our three children.
