Dr Anna Sinclair
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 3 children. When not at Linden I am on the sunny Kapiti Coast being a mother, netball coach and taxi service.
Dr Rod Ferguson
MBCHB DIP OBS DIP MSM
I grew up in Alexandra, Central Otago. I attended medical school at Otago University and completed my general medical and general practice training in Wellington. I met and married my wife Sharon during this time and soon after we travelled overseas for our OE. We lived in London, and I completed the UK general practice scheme and became a partner in a general practice in London. However it only took me one trip back to New Zealand to convince me to return and soon after in 1992 I started working at the Linden Surgery. Early in that time I completed a post graduate diploma in Musculoskeletal Medicine and as part of this I learned the use of acupuncture for pain control. I have enjoyed my years at Linden Surgery and I have lived in Tawa the whole time, raising three boys with Sharon. Outside work I enjoy vege. gardening, golf and more recently the challenge of bridge.
Dr John Langham
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 enjoy getting out on foot or by bike into the hills around Wellington with (and sometimes without) my 4 young children.

I obtained my undergraduate medical training in Hong Kong, and came to NZ 20 years ago. I worked in Waikato Hospital for 4 years before I started my family and underwent my GP training from the Royal New Zealand College of GP. I have worked in various GP practices since 2001. I have 2 teenage boys and my husband also works in Wellington. I enjoy working in a team, and seeing patients with different cultural backgrounds. I have special interests in travel medicine, sexual health, women’s health and child health. My interests are travelling, craft and attending Gym work out. I am looking forward to working at Tawa Medical Centre and Linden Surgery, with their friendly teams.
