Dr Frances McClure | Mission Bay
Dr McClure is a well-known and respected GP in her local Mission Bay community, where she has practiced for more than 40 years. Her genuine dedication to the community is highly valued by her patients with many of them now bringing their own children and grandchildren to see her.
Throughout her career, Dr McClure has committed to a mana-enhancing practice. She is well-known for actively promoting the values that epitomise the role of a GP – respect, dignity, and integrity.
She is a strong advocate for women’s health and was instrumental in the adoption of new legislation supporting better access to funded contraception in the 1990s. She was a GP representative on PHARMAC’s Therapeutic and Advisory Committee (PTAC) Sub-Committees related to women’s health, and helped to develop the New Zealand Guidelines for the Management of Osteoporosis.
Dr McClure is retiring next month from a medical career in which she has shown an outstanding commitment to high-quality, safe, compassionate medical practice.
