Our health care team of doctors, practice and specialist nurses, receptionists and administrators are here to help you stay healthy and well.
Julie is a New Zealand trained local registered nurse (RN) with many years of primary care nursing in our community and a longstanding member of the practice team. She has developed a very broad range of primary care nursing skills. Julie enjoys learning and has continued her nursing studies and completed a Master of Nursing and more recently gained the authority to prescribe medicines for patients attending the nurse clinics.
The new RN designated prescriber role allows nurses who work in collaboration with GP’s and have successfully completed advanced education and certification to prescribe medicines from a specified list. The RN can assess, diagnose and treat common conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, asthma, skin infections, sexual health etc.
Julie is passionate about supporting people to gain confidence in management of their long-term conditions. She has completed advanced education in diabetes and associated health problems, and is able to provide specialised diabetes care to our growing population of people with diabetes. Being able to prescribe medicines has made a difference for patients attending the nurse clinic and frees up the GP’s time to see more complicated patients.
