John Street Doctors

This building in Newtown, Wellington, housed a medical practice from 1894 to 2001. In 1946 resident doctor William Shirer decided to establish a group practice – a radical concept at the time. His experiment was successful. The building was sold to the Child Cancer Foundation in 2001, ending 55 years of group practice.
