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.

Jason started his medical career as a medic in the Army where he developed his interest in General Practice. After 2 years in the Army he left to pursue a Bachelor of Health Science at AUT’s Akoranga campus, just around the corner from the Practice.

After graduating he worked on the Neuromedical unit at Auckland City Hospital before heading overseas on his OE were he found himself again in General Practice in London. It was while there he completed a Diploma in Travel Medicine with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons in Glasgow.

He moved on to do his Nursing degree, before returning to travel medicine in a General Practice setting while working for Citibank in London, where he looked after their travellers. Jason also loves travelling himself, having spent time in SE Asia, Central and South America, Europe and North Africa amongst other destinations. Travel is something Jason feels is important for global culture, a value he is instilling in his children.

Jason leads our Travel Clinic and is supported in his role by our G.Ps Dr Antje Bongartz and Dr Shelley Lichter, an international line up of experienced General Practitioners, all of whom have experience in educating travellers.

We have used the services of Family Doctors’ at Smales since 2011. They have provided us with pre-employment screening for our clinical staff as well as on-site Flu vaccinations. Having the vaccinations on site makes it easier for our staff to participate in the annual vaccination programme.

The doctors have also provided us with an in depth occupational health assessment where privacy of the individual was fully respected and the employee made a safe and early return to work.
