Dr Helen Gemmell


MBChB, FRNZCGP, Dip Obst/Gyn, Dip Paed, PGCert Sports Med

Originally from Scotland, Dr Helen came to New Zealand after her medical internship and has called New Zealand home for over 20 years.

From her many years as a GP, Dr Helen has always had a wellness based approach to her work, focusing on being patient centred and holistic. The use of medicinal cannabis to alleviate symptoms and manage a wide range of conditions fits well within her practicing framework where it expands the treatment options alongside conventional medications.

With a wealth of clinical experience Dr Helen has always had a strong interest in all aspects of women‘s health with a particular focus on the menopause. She has additional post graduate qualifications in sports medicine – the use of medicinal cannabis to support training and exercise recovery for all kinds of athletes is an emerging clinical area. Dr Helen also has a keen interest in the concerns and symptoms experienced by those people living with multiple sclerosis.

Dr Helen brings a kind and compassionate approach to her work and welcomes seeing patients from all walks of life.
