Practice Nurse

I qualified as a nurse in the UK and worked for many years in Acute Cardiothoracic units and Adult and Neonatal Intensive Care Units, both in London and Melbourne.

I was then offered an opportunity to work in Practice Nursing and thoroughly enjoyed the wide scope of nursing and variety of people through all age groups.

Eight years ago I moved to New Zealand with my husband and two daughters who are now young adults. I have continued to work as Practice Nurse in Auckland.

I enjoy family life, long walks, sewing, reading and travelling when possible.

Practice Nurse

Hi I’m Jacqui Chapman I have been nursing for 26 years. I started in paediatric cardiothoracic. I then taught nursing for ten years.

I have a keen interest in Head injuries and managed “Concussion Specialists” here in Auckland. I work part time in private accident and medical and part time here at Family Doctors at Smales.

I love travel and have worked volunteer nursing overseas in several countries. I have young adult children who are starting their own adventures in life. I love camping and fishing, mostly all the sunshine activities.

Practice Nurse

I started my medical career as a medic in the Army. The Army was where I found my interest in General Practice. After 2 years in the Army I left to pursue my Bachelor of Health Science at AUT’s Akoranga campus, just around the corner from the Practice.

After graduating I worked on the Neuromedical unit at Auckland City Hospital before heading overseas on my OE were I found myself again in General Practice in London. It was here I completed my Diploma in Travel Medicine with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons in Glasgow.

On returning to NZ to start a family I have worked in recruitment and Occupational Health before returning to my original interest area of General Practice. I have a passion for travel which I foster as often as I can, I love reading a good book, spending time with my family and exercising.

We began using Family Doctors at Smales at the request of a client, location was the biggest issue for our client so Family Doctors solved this issue because of location.

We have found dealing with Family Doctors meets our current needs, we are now using Family Doctors for additional services and these are being met well. We would recommend Family Doctors for the location, access to medical help and ease of use with staff.
