Dr Jo ToobyQualifications: MRNZCGP, BM BS, BMedSci

Special interests: young families & healthcare of the elderly

I was born and bred in South East England and graduated from Nottingham Medical School in 2000. I spent my early years as a doctor in the NHS. Through my love of travel and netball, I came to New Zealand and decided to settle here in 2003.  I continued doctoring in the public system, working as a junior doctor in a wide range of specialities.  I am married with two young children, both born here in Nelson. Once the children arrived I became more family focused and decided to switch from hospital medicine to general practice, becoming a registered GP in 2013.  I enjoy the varied work that general practice provides, as no two days are ever the same!  In my spare time I enjoy mountain biking and tramping.


Dr Jo Tooby will be available Monday, Tuesday morning, Wednesday afternoon and Thursday (these sessions from June 2018)
