Dr Vermunt is one of the directors of Waihopai Health Services. Dr Vermunt initially practiced in the Gladstone Medical Centre. Since a traumatic brain injury in 2001 he has not been able to return to clinical practice but has a role in managing the overall functioning of Waihopai Health Services. His special interest is in Health Information and Security. He works to ensure the security of your health information but is also aware that this information needs to be shared with other health care providers with the patient’s consent. Dr Vermunt works with the team at Waihopai Health to provide our patients with the highest quality of care that is available.
I have been employed in Primary Health since 2001. The ever changing environment is exciting if not a challenging role. In 2012 I gained NZIM Certificate in Practice Management (Health).
I have 3 boys that include a set of twins. My boys taught me patience and stamina to say the least but also the benefits of teamwork which is a vital part of working in the medical sector.
Interests are the gym, fishing, and music. Favourite holidays are camping and road trips. My family and friends are central to my life and I spend as much as time will allow with them.

I began working at Waihopai Health in July 2018 after 25 years working in Pharmacy. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in pharmacy but felt it was time for a change, but still wanted to remain in the health sector.
I love spending time with friends and family especially my son who is due to start school this year (2019). I enjoy bush walks, reading & cooking. My favourite destination is anywhere with my family.
I have just recently joined the WHS Team December 2020. I have previously worked in Funeral services for the previous 14 years and many years in the hospitality industry.
I have 3 adult children, 2 grandchildren and Rosie the dog!
In my spare time I enjoy bush walking and exploring all the beautiful beaches southland has to offer. Spending quality time with friends and family.
