    Two of NZLocums Relationship Managers have recently visited practices in Auckland and surrounding areas. From the tourist haven of Waiheke Island, to the rustic beauty of Great Barrier Island and scenic rural towns of Tuakau and Waiuku. The trip was an opportunity for the Relationship Managers to meet with the practices and increase their knowledge of the various locations.
