Dame Sue Bagshaw

Primary care doctor and senior lecturer

Dame Sue Bagshaw works as a primary care doctor specialising in adolescent/youth health at a one-stop community youth health centre for 10-25-year-olds, which she helped to set up. She is a senior lecturer in adolescent health in the Department of Paediatrics at the Christchurch School of Medicine. She spent 20 years working for the Family Planning Association in Christchurch and ten years working part-time on the Methadone programme in Christchurch: which is why she has interests in common with young people – sex, drugs and rock 'n roll!
