Staff News : 2015 has seen a few changes in our staffing with the appointment of Vicki Prebble, Practice Manager replacing John Blake who held the role for over 19 years. The transition has been easy with John remaining in an administrative role.
Another long serving staff member Dr Andrea Crichton, who provided sessional cover for Dr Aine McCoy over the last 12 years, resigned earlier this month, to concentrate on further study and spend more time with her young family. We will miss her but wish her well. She promises not to lose touch.
A number of the staff recently enjoyed a fun historical tour of Miramar Peninsula, with Dr Aine making an excellent tour guide. We learned quite a bit about the area, visiting the Massey and Ataturk Memorials, where we savoured the delights of a scrumptious picnic overlooking Breaker Bay while trying to imagine what our ANZAC soldiers endured all those years ago. We are truly fortunate to live in NZ.
Christmas Appeal: Amongst the tinsel that decorates the Waiting Room over the next couple of weeks is a corner dedicated to Women’s Refuge. We ask that you support this worthy cause if you have a small spare (new) gift that you would like to donate to children, who may otherwise not be aware that it is that time of the year – for giving. All donations will be gratefully received and delivered to Women’s Refuge on Mon 19 Dec.
