Professional Bio

Sue Bagshaw:
Sue Bagshaw works as a primary care doctor specialising in youth health at a one stop shop (YOSS) community youth health centre for 10-25-year-olds, which she helped to set up, under a trust called Korowai Youth Well-being Trust. She is working with others to set up a Youth Hub of services, recreation, creativity and transition housing. She is a senior lecturer in adolescent health in the department of Paediatrics at the Christchurch School of Medicine, and she is an educator with the Collaborative Trust (a research and training centre for youth health and development, which she also helped to set up).

Phil Bagshaw:
Until his retirement in 2010, Phil Bagshaw was Associate Professor of Surgery at the University of Otago  Christchurch, where he practised as a specialist General Surgeon, taught undergraduate and postgraduate surgery, and did surgical research.

During his clinical career, he was President of the New Zealand Society of Gastroenterology, Chair of the New Zealand National Board of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, Chair of the Council of Medical Colleges in New Zealand, and an elected member of the Canterbury District Health Board.  He helped set up the National Liver Unit in Auckland and for fourteen years chaired the New Zealand Liver Transplant Advisory Group.

In 2003, Phil had the idea of starting a charity hospital for patients who could not access the care they needed in the public hospital system and could not afford private care.  With three other trustees, he formed the Canterbury Charity Hospital Trust in 2004 and since has Chaired its board of trustees.  He still works there as a volunteer General Surgeon.  In 2008 he was the North & South New Zealander of the Year and in 2019 he was made a Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit.
