Our Doctors

To improve the continuity of your care we have created 2 teams of GPs and nurses within the practice. Although you are welcome to see any GP you wish, it can help with your care if you see people within the same team. This is particularly true if you have any ongoing health problems.

  • Doctors Jayne Davies, Fiona MacLean and Pip Clearwater work with practice nurse team leader Sue Evans.
  • Doctors Simon Brebner, Susie Meyer and Mark Edmond work with Jackie Davidson as nursing team leader.

More detailed information about shared care teams can be found at bottom of the registration section.

If you are choosing a doctor or have a specific type of complaint it may be helpful to look at our doctor profiles.

Doctor Fiona MacLean


I studied medicine at St Andrews University, Scotland and at Manchester University, England, graduating in 2003. I completed my basic surgical training before electing to pursue a career in general practice.

Although born and educated in the UK, I am a New Zealander courtesy of my parentage. I moved “home” in 2012 with my husband and my two young sons and we feel privileged to live in such an incredible region.

I consider myself a true generalist, comfortable working within the full spectrum of general practice.

When off duty, I enjoy riding my horse and I try (but fail) to keep up with my kids on water and snow skis.

Doctor Jayne Davies

MBChB, MRCGP (UK), DFFP, DRCOG, FRNZCGP, Cert Av Med, Dip Trav Med,
CAA NZ Medical Examiner

I am originally from the UK and graduated from Liverpool Medical School in 1999. I completed my GP training in the Lake District of England and then moved to another beautiful place to join Aspiring Medical Centre as a partner in 2005.

I thrive on the variety that is general practice, although I do have a few areas of special interest:

  • Women’s health and sexual health. I have a Diploma in Family Planning as well as Obs and Gynaecology, and work as a doctor in the sexual health clinic. I can insert IUDs and implants.
  • Travel medicine. Travel is a passion of mine and I have a Diploma in Travel Medicine. At AMC we offer pre and post travel consults and I am a Yellow Fever Accredited Provider
  • Aviation medicine. Since 2011, I have been a Medical Examiner for the CAA NZ.
  • Child health
  • Dermatology

I am an accredited teacher with the Royal NZ College of GPs and still enjoy learning in general.

My husband Pete and I love being in the mountains and biking, and we have a young daughter who is also beginning to enjoy all that Wanaka has to offer!

Doctor Mark Edmond


I was born and raised in Christchurch and obtained my medical degree at Auckland University. I then trained in bobsled and represented New Zealand at the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City where I met my wife – a two-time Olympian in luge. I practiced medicine in Canada, Australia and around New Zealand before settling in my own practice in Christchurch for ten years.

I have a broad interest in all aspects of General Practice, but particularly in evidence-based Natural Medicine. I sub-specialise in fatigue disorders, minor surgery, relationships, working with athletes and injuries. I also have a keen interest in the science behind nutrient dense food. I am an elected fellow of the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners.

I have been a regular visitor to Wanaka since I was a boy and moved here with my family in 2013. I love spending time with my wife, hence we have five children!

Pip Clearwater

Dr Pip Clearwater  (on Maternity Leave til May 2018)


I grew up in Auckland and went to medical school there, training all over the upper North Island including my final year of medical school in Rotorua. After a year at Timaru hospital, we then moved to Palmerston North for my husband’s job in the Air Force. I did my first year of GP work in the Manawatu, working in Bulls and Feilding. I have completed post graduate diplomas in Women’s Heath and Child Health, and these are special interests of mine. I am trained in the insertion and removal of IUCDs and the Jadelle contraceptive implant.

I am enjoying the wide scope and variety of general practice as I work toward my Fellowship with the Royal NZ College of GPs.

We’ve been lucky to get an opportunity to live in Wanaka since December 2014, where my husband and I can enjoy the outdoors on our days off – especially canyoning, hiking, and mountain biking

Doctor Simon Brebner

MBChB Dip Sports Med FRNZCGP

I am a born and bred Kiwi and have been living in Wanaka for the past 18 years.

Originally a ski field Doctor at Treble Cone, I joined Aspiring Medical Centre in 1998. I gained a Diploma of Sports Medicine in 2000 and I am accredited provider with NZ Academy of Sport. For a number of years I was the Medical Director of the New Zealand’s Winter Olympic Performance Programme, helping to patch up the athletes as quickly as they broke themselves.

As well as this focus on sports and musculo-skeletal medicine, I have trained for specialisation in minor surgery such as vasectomy and more complicated minor procedures. I combine these interests with my day-to-day general practice.

I enjoy a large number of sports and activities, a good consultation room natter and have some crazy little toys for children to play with.

Doctor Susie Meyer


I am an Auckland medical school graduate but my accent confuses people as I was raised in the United States. In the 30 years I have lived in NZ I have spent 20 of them in Wanaka. In 1995 I started Aspiring Medical Centre as a sole practice that has now grown to a busy 5 doctor medical centre.

I love any challenge that general practice offers from minor trauma to chronic depression. I have a pragmatic and common sense approach to life’s problems.

I am an accredited teacher with Royal New Zealand College of GPs (RNZCGP) and we host general practice trainees. I am also a Medical Educator for the General Practice Education Programme (GPEP) that helps people to gain fellowship with the RNZCGP.

My partner Whitney is a mountain guide and heli-ski guide and we have a grown up son who studies design in Wellington. When I have time I like to get into the outdoors and stay active.

Doctor Rebecca Wire

BMedSci (Hons), BMBS, DipTM&H, MRNZCGP

Bex spent 6 months in the practice last year as part of her GP Registrar training and we are pleased to welcome her back as Locum for Dr Pip Clearwater while Pip is on Maternity Leave.

I graduated from Nottingham University Medical School in 2009 and worked for 2 years in England before moving to New Zealand in 2011. I worked at Christchurch Emergency Department for 3 years before escaping from city life. I originally moved down to Wanaka to work as a ski field doctor and then decided not to leave. I live here with my partner and our pets and outside of work can be found on the lake or in the mountains.

I have a diploma in tropical medicine and am interested in travel medicine. I volunteered as a doctor for the Himalayan Rescue Association in Nepal in 2013.

I am interested in all areas of general practice and have particular experience in paediatrics, obstetrics & gynaecology, and urology.
