Dr Belinda Thompson
Belinda is mum to bubbly chatty Jack. After one year maternity leave she thought she could return to Gisborne Hospital where she was the Emergency Department Clinical Director and manage the balance between work and mothering. But the long working days and night shifts proved too difficult and she made some drastic changes.
“I went back to ED but with working the nights, and trying to catch up on sleep with a one-year-old to prioritize, it was too hard.”
Belinda jumped at the chance to work in primary care and now does three days a week for Three Rivers Medical 9am-3pm. Her wealth of experience providing urgent care makes her a perfect match for seeing patients in Queue Doc.
