Welcome to Nurse Gemma.

April 23, 2020

We are delighted to introduce our new Nurse, Gemma Haefele. Gemma has had an induction like no other during lockdown but has already risen to the challenges of juggling PPE, scarce flu vaccinations and taking on her role as Nurse Team Leader. Gemma is already a Nurse Prescriber, which means that she can safely prescribe a large list of medications. Medplus is keen to have nurses operating at the very top of their scope and we look forward to Gemma running a variety of clinics, including blood pressure, contraception, asthma, diabetes, UTI and sore throat management, and her particular speciality, eczema. Please give Gemma a warm welcome when you meet her. Here is her introduction to you: -

"My name is Gemma Haefele. I completed my Bachelor of Nursing at Massey University in Albany and have since gone on to qualify as a Registered Nurse Designated Prescriber. I plan to continue on to do my Nurse Practitioner training next year in order to complete my Masters degree. I have always loved working in Primary Health Care, having always worked in a General Practice. Outside of work, I enjoy running and cycling and have done a number of half marathons. I enjoy baking, trying new recipes and I love music."
