Ruth Harkett

Ruth is a generalist gynaecologist with special interest in the investigation and management of menstrual (period) disorders, colposcopy (abnormal smears) and vulval disorders. She also has a particular interest in the management of prolapse.

After graduating from Otago Medical School, Ruth underwent specialist training at Wellington and Christchurch public hospitals, and then in the Midlands, England.

Ruth fell in love with the beautiful Bay of Plenty when she came to take up a locum position at Tauranga Hospital in 1996, and she has lived here ever since.

In her work at Tauranga Public Hospital, Ruth practices obstetrics along with her gynaecological practice. She is glad to be able to share her specialist experience in training medical students and trainee specialists.
She also contributes her experience as a member of the Grace Hospital Medical Advisory Committee.

Ruth places importance in working with her patients to develop an individual management plan that is best suited to their personal needs, adapting the plan as circumstances change.

When she is not working, Ruth values the time she is able to spend with her friends and family. She takes every opportunity to enjoy outdoor activities such as walking, kayaking and cycling.
