Our Team

Anna Sinclair

General Practitioner FRNZCGP MBCHB DCH DIP GER MED

I grew up in Stratford, Taranaki and as a child I enjoyed visiting the family GP. I always knew that I wanted to be a GP and care for families. I graduated from Otago Medical School in 1992 and am a Fellow of the Royal NZ College of GPs. I have diplomas in Child Health and Geriatric Medicine, reflecting my interest in all ages of life.
 
I enjoy the diversity of general practice and the relationships I have built with my patients. I am a good listener and enjoy a great laugh! The Linden Surgery was my baby for many years and now has to share my attention with my three children. When not at Linden I am on the sunny Kapiti Coast being a mother, netball coach and taxi service.

John Langham

General Practitioner FRNZCGP MBCHB Auckland 2004

I grew up in Linden before training at Auckland Medical School. I am a generalist at heart, which has taken me through periods of specialist training in emergency medicine and general practice prior to returning to Linden Surgery.  I have completed further study in Skin Cancer medicine and surgery. 
 
I enjoy getting out on foot or by bike into the hills around Wellington with (and sometimes without) my four growing children.

Sinead Mccarthy

Health Improvement Practitioner

Kia ora. Ko Sinead toku ingoa.

My name is Sinead, and I grew up in Ireland.

I moved to New Zealand in 2015 and quickly fell in love with this wonderful country! I love the outdoors – in particular, hiking, surfing, and swimming. I also enjoy reading and yoga.

I am a registered nurse who is passionate about supporting people to improve their health and quality of life. I work collaboratively with people to create a plan that will support someone to make some small changes to improve their overall wellbeing.

Melanie Bass

GENERAL PRACTITIONER

Kia Ora, I am a GP registrar at Linden Surgery. I work Monday – Wednesday and enjoy the diversity, rewards and challenges of GP work. As a Registrar, I am working towards my fellowship and have a great passion for supporting patients, advocacy and working towards more equitable practice. I originally completed an honours degree in Biomedical science at Victoria before embarking on medical school training at Auckland university, but ultimately Wellington has always pulled me home. Outside of work, I enjoy arts, sewing and getting out into the Wellington hills.

Meadow

Nurse

Kia ora, my name is Meadow.

I have been a nurse since 2015 and have worked for the most part in primary care, community and older-persons rehabilitation.

I come from Upper Hutt, where I raised my two sons. I enjoy exploring the many bushwalks around the Hutt Valley and cycling the beautiful Hutt river trail.

In my spare time I like to read, cook, dabble in art and craft, and spend time with my family.

I am glad to be joining the Tawa community and look forward to getting to know each of you.

Piper

Nurse

Kia Ora, I graduated from Otago Polytechnic in 2021. My husband (Matt) and I then moved to Wellington with our two boys (cats) Berlioz and Brave.
My passion is care for those who identify as a part of the rainbow community, and making a safe environment for everyone!
In my spare time I tend to my farm, travel through outer space and fight dragons from the safety of my couch (digital adventures only, thank you). As well as going for walks and exploring what food Wellington has to offer.

Te Atamira

Nurse

He uri tēnei nō Ngāti  Porou, Ngāti  Koroki Kahukura, Ngā Puhi me Te Whānau-ā-Apanu. Kua tipu ake au I raro I te maru o Ngāti Toa Rangatira . My purpose is to ensure that I cooperate in manaakitanga (caring), kaitiakitanga (protection), rangatiratanga (leadership), whanaungatanga (kinship), pukengatanga
(skills and growth), wairuatanga (spirituality), kotahitanga (unity and
solidarity), pumautanga (stability) and tino rangatiratanga
(self-determination) into my practice as a nurse.

I grew up under the umbrella of Te Kōhanga Reo which meant that I was surrounded with Te reo Māori, Tikanga Māori, protocols, understanding Tapu and Noa, waiata, oriori, moteatea, taking care of elders and how to make the best cup of tea. I studied at Whitireia polytech. My life goal is to care, support and help people get or feel better. My external passions include Mirimiri & Romiromi and Rongoa Māori.

“Tūwhitia te hopo, mairangatia te angitū!
Feel the fear and do it anyway!”

Lynette

Primary Care Practice Assistant

I started at Linden Surgery in 2007 as a receptionist, in 2019 I was given the opportunity to move into the role of Primary Care Practice Assistant, completing the course and gaining the NZ Certificate in Health and Wellbeing. I enjoy my role working with a wonderful team and the interaction I have with patients.
Having moved into Tawa when I was very young I have continued to live here, where along with my husband we have raised our two children. As a family of four we have enjoyed being part of the community. In the weekends I love time spent with my husband, going for walks, reading, baking and a doing variety of crafts.

I enjoy working in the Linden/Tawa community and over the years watching families grow. In my spare time I enjoy family time, going for bike and scooter rides with my son and also a spot of fishing.

Karen

I have been working at Linden Surgery for about 5 and a half years. It’s great working with and interacting with people in person and over the phone. I was working in the education sector, where I was working with High Health Need students and students with moderate to severe behaviour issues.

My go to things in life is family, friends and my Rotterman dog, Brodie (a rottweiler and doberman cross). I really enjoy baking and candlemaking when I have time.

Cathie

Hi I’m Cathie, your Practice Administrator at Tawa Medical & Linden Surgery. I joined the team nearly twelve years ago, coming from banking, health and telecommunication roles. It is great working with such great teams to provide the best medical care for our patients. I myself, enjoy both the challenge and reward of helping the many people for all walks of life I have met along the way.
My family has grown and all left the nest to the sunny Bay of Plenty starting their own families. I love my frequent trips to visit them and spending time creating memories with the grandchildren.
