Thorsten Stanley


I am a Senior Paediatrician (seeing patients under 18 years) with a particular focus on Paediatric Immunology and Allergy and based in Wellington for over 40 years. I work in private practice at Riddiford Medical and in public at Wellington Hospital.

I completed undergraduate studies at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, and paediatric specialty training at Yorkhill Hospital and the Royal Maternity hospital, Glasgow with a special interest in immunology, before coming to NZ initially as a Senior Lecturer in 1980. Whilst I am a general paediatrician, I subspecialise in paediatric allergy, eczema and asthma, and more recently have been seeing many children with ADHD.
My name is a bit tricky so I sometimes get my young patients to call me "Dr Tosh"
