20 WAIRARAPA NEWS, OCTOBER 12, 2011 HEALTH ZERO FEES BEN NIKOLAISON Masterton Resident and Automotive student I have learnt so much this year studying hairdressing and beauty therapy at Wellington Trades Academy.

Wairarapa's largest medical prac- tice is losing two doctors, but they will be soon replaced by experi- enced GPs from overseas. Dr John Gordon will take over the patients of Dr Emily Burgess, who leaves Masterton Medical in October and to go to a practice in the South Island. Dr Gordon has been living and working in Scotland but is relocating to Masterton with his family in January 2012. He worked in Masterton early in his career, so is already familiar with Masterton and its people. Masterton Medical acting gen- eral manager Helen Kjestrup Dr Gordon will be an excellent addition to their team, and they look forward to the pub- lic meeting him. There is a break between Dr Burgess's departure and Dr Gordon's arrival and the practice management asks patients to be tolerant while they manage the change. Our group of stalwart doctors will assist you with your healthcare needs until Dr Gordon arrives,'' Ms Kje- strup says. We also have a team of highly skilled nurses that can assist with many healthcare issues so be sure to ask for an appointment with your doctor's nurse where appropriate.'' Dr Preedar Oreggio is coming to Masterton Medical from the United States and will be starting in mid-December. Dr Oreggio will be here for 12 months to sample life in Masterton and New Zealand. He will fill in as a locum while some Masterton Medical doctors take leave. Wairarapa people may remember Dr Shakir Jamalund- in, who worked with the centre some time ago. Dr Jamalundin and his family are moving back to Masterton in December, and he will return to Masterton Medical to take over the patients of Dr Pete Morrison, who leaves in November to take up a position at Whaiora. While we are sad to say good- bye to Dr Burgess and Dr Morri- son, we wish them both well for the future and with their new positions and we look forward to welcoming Dr Jamalundin, Dr Oreggio and Dr Gordon to the Masterton Medical family,'' says Ms Kjestrup.
