Justin Parr: Hutt Valley DHB   I am currently a SET1 trainee in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Hutt Hospital. I grew up and studied in Brisbane and moved to NZ to take up a registrar job at Waikato Hospital. I have also worked in Auckland.  I'm keen to help STONZ members make the most of their time as trainees / junior doctors at Hutt Valley DHB. I think the union is well placed to facilitate appropriate staffing and rostering decisions, with a focus on preservation of training opportunities in the busy clinical environment.

Emma Littlehales: Counties Manukau DHB   I’m a UK graduate and a Non-SET plastics registrar at Middlemore. I wanted to be involved in STONZ because I worked in a system in the UK where juniors worked a 70 hour week to get the required experience for elective surgery, but were only paid for 48. I want to make sure the New Zealand trainees get the required experience to become consultants in a safe way, whilst still being recognised and compensated for the hard work they do. I want to fight for safe and evidence based rosters, which allow for enough training time to make safe consultants.
