Dr Vincent Chan (Partner)

MB ChB (honours) Birmingham (UK) 2002; FRNZCGP 2008; Dip Paediatrics; Dip Com Emergency Medicine; Postgrad Cert Obstetrics & Gynaecology

I completed my medical degree with Honours from Birmingham University in England in 2002. After gaining experience and postgraduate qualifications while working in various specialties such as Medicine, Surgery, Emergency and Trauma, Paediatrics, Geriatrics, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, and rural General Practice, I entered General Practice in 2006 – gaining Fellowship and later settling down in becoming a Partner at Cornwall Medical Centre in 2013. It is a responsibility, a privilege, and a pleasure to serve the community together as part of this dedicated primary care team – now and for many years to come.

From newborn baby checks to serving a number of resthomes; from preventative health to chronic and palliative care – my philosophy is to have a long-term commitment to ongoing care, being approachable, caring and communicative at all times, and continuously keeping up to date with medical advances.

Born in Hong Kong, and migrated to New Zealand at the age of ten, I am fluent in English and Cantonese, plus basic Mandarin.

I enjoy spending time with my wife and three kids, the great outdoors, as well as supporting Aston Villa Football Club through thick and thin!

I enjoy all aspects of general practice, as well as skin biopsies and mole excisions.

(If  it looks like no bookable appointment slots are available when you try to book online on Connectmed, please phone reception as I regularly reserve a few appointment slots for same day emergencies and for those unable to book online)

“A physician is obligated to consider more than a diseased organ, more than even the whole man – he must view the man in his world.” – Harvey Cushing.

I began my medical career after graduating from the University of Auckland approximately 15 years ago. Before life as a General Practitioner, I trained predominantly in Surgery and Emergency Medicine both in New Zealand and Australia.

I love meeting people and as I was brought up prioritizing family values, it was only natural that I gravitated to General Practice. 

I am a Fellow of the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners (RNZCGP) and enjoy all aspects of General Practice. In particular I take special interest in skin cancer surgery, wound & injury care, and Long Term Conditions. 

When not at work, I am likely enjoying time with my family and friends, exercising or looking for the next travel adventure.

I am currently accepting new patients. Click here to download new patient enrolment form, complete and email back to reception@cornwallmedical.co.nz
