Women in Business and Health - Boosting Women's Health and Success in the Workplace

Dr. Samantha Newman - The FemaleGP

MBChB BSc (hons) PGDipOMG

Women comprise 67.3% of New Zealand's labour force. Investing in women's health isn't just a good idea —it's a smart business strategy.

Join us for a breakfast presentation with Dr. Sam Newman, a high-profile medical practitioner specialising in women's health and its role in the workplace. This session will provide valuable insights into how women's health can influence productivity, well-being, and overall workplace dynamics.

Don’t miss the opportunity to learn how to create healthier, more productive workplaces from a leading expert.
Sam is a general practitioner with a Specialist Interest in Women's Health | Honorary Lecturer at the University of Auckland | Adjunct Associate Researcher University of Monash.

Sam qualified from Bristol University Medical School in 2010. She started her clinical training in Northwest London and subsequently started Obstetrics and Gynaecology Specialist Training. In 2013, she moved to New Zealand with her husband and has been working as a GP since 2015. The FemaleGP was established in 2016 to improve access to focused healthcare for women.

In 2020-2021, Sam was the Clinic Lead of a GP-led prolapse and incontinence clinic at Hawkes Bay Hospital. She works as a Forensic Medical Examiner for sexual assault, and in General Practice at a local Family Practice. It has always been her ambition to focus on women's health and run a specialist clinic. Samantha regularly meets with specialist healthcare providers in women's health, particularly menopause and reproductive hormone medicine, from all over the world to ensure she delivers quality healthcare.

Sam works as a general GP at a local family practice as well as in her private clinic because she believes being an up-to-date GP is fundamental to providing women’s health care. Women's health extends far beyond the ovaries, and traditional female reproductive organs.

Sam lives the ‘kiwi-dream’ on a lifestyle block in Hawkes Bay with her daughter, husband and dogs (as well as the obligatory chickens and sheep). Out of work, Sam is either with family, playing hockey or running with friends. She also loves baking and trying her hand at a variety of arts and crafts, particularly with her daughter.

Please note:
Sam will use the Slido app in her presentation. Please bring your mobile phone along.
