Practice Nursing is a specialised area of nursing in the Primary Health Care setting.
Our highly experienced team of nurses, led by Practice Nurse Manager Gill Lane, are Sally Wood, Els Aalderink and Marion Kirkness. They all have considerable experience between them in all fields of nursing.
Marion is our qualified ‘smear taker’ nurse and Sally Wood has a strong passionate around smoking cessation. We have one relief nurse Jan Baber whom you will all know well as Jan has been affiliated with Browns Bay Medical Centre for many years. Rosemary Perkins has decided on her retirement at the end of August 2017 to return to her home town Wellington.
Our nurses are available for advice, telephone calls and appointments. Our focus is on health promotion, prevention and early detection of illness and in providing support and information.
The nurses have undertaken courses and gained certification in areas specific to General Practice and are all involved in ongoing Professional Development.
