About Me

As the esteemed Clinical Director at Girven Family Practice, Dr. Susan Jenkins brings a wealth of knowledge and commitment to her role within the practice—a position she has nurtured with dedication since joining the team in March 2016. Dr. Jenkins’s journey in medicine commenced at the University of Dundee in Scotland, where she earned her Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery. Following her passion for healing and helping others, she relocated to Tauranga in early 2013, a move that marked the beginning of her significant contributions to the Bay of Plenty community.

With a profound expertise in travel medicine, Dr. Jenkins is known for her comprehensive approach to health and wellness, particularly for patients preparing to explore the world. Her guidance ensures both seasoned adventurers and casual tourists embark on their journeys with health considerations meticulously planned.

Beyond her professional pursuits, Tauranga is where Dr. Jenkins’s heart truly resides. Alongside her husband, who is integral to the medical centre’s leadership, she has planted deep roots in the local community. Together, they are raising three beautiful daughters, embodying her belief in the importance of family and the joy of a balanced life.

Patients and staff alike admire Dr. Jenkins for her compassion, attention to detail, and the personalised care she offers. She is not only a pillar of Girven Family Practice but also a cherished member of the community she serves.
