Dr Nick Giblin
Nick first joined the team at the Broadway Medical Centre in 1991.
He graduated from Otago Medical School in 1986. He worked at Dunedin Hospital and then went overseas for a couple of years. He then “temporarily” returned to Dunedin to work in Obstetrics and Paediatrics at Dunedin Hospital.
One night while working in Queen Mary Maternity Hospital (at about 3.00am)! Nick was cornered by Dr Paul Bennett who invited him to come and join him and Dr’s Brian Williams and Jack Chin at the yet to be built Broadway Medical Centre at 8 Broadway. When he started he had no patients of his own and had to build up his practice from scratch. Fortunately he had a lot of support from the nurses, midwives and doctors he worked with at Dunedin Hospital and this helped him get started.
Now Nick enjoys caring for many patients with a focus on keeping them healthy rather than simply dealing with their illnesses.
In his spare time Nick enjoys jogging and the benefits of living in Dunedin.
Dr Nick also also is a volunteer with Koru Care Otago. Koru Care is a registered charitable trust run by a team of volunteers who work together to make dreams come true for ill and disabled children. This usually involves an annual trip to the Gold Coast for a group of children that can require a high level of medical care. Doctor Giblin goes along to help the registered nurses and parents with any medical assistance they may need.
