Roslyn is a dedicated and compassionate nurse who has been caring for the community for over 30 years.  She started her journey at Christchurch Hospital and honed her skills across various wards, with a special focus on paediatrics. She then transitioned to general practice where she thrived in diverse roles including Nurse Manager and Practice Manager.

With over 20 years of experience in general practice, Roslyn has made a significant impact. Her passion lies in child and family health, parenting, nutrition, and development, areas she believes are critical to lifelong health.

Roslyn finds joy in the collaborative nature of healthcare, taking pride in actively listening to and addressing patients' needs, always eager to learn and find solutions.

Outside of her professional life, she enjoys walking on the beach, camping in her caravan, reading, baking, attending church and spending quality time with her family.

I enjoy working as a team; listening to patients and their needs, and being able to make a difference however small or big that might be.
