He has been a Fellow of the Royal College of General Practitioners and consulted for 7 years out of a large family based practice in Orewa. During this time he became a Registrar teacher for the College and was involved with the training of young up and coming GPs.
Simon completed his post graduate diploma in Sports Medicine in 2014. To further pursue his interest in this area, he decided to join the team at Axis as a Registrar.
