18IMG_9982_1_1c Frances I joined the Te Ngae Medical Team in 2012 as a Practice Nurse, having relocated from my home of 30 years in the windy Manawatu. I enjoy the variety of work involved in General Practice and to work in a purpose built, brand new building is about as good as it gets! I love the outdoors and spend a lot of time wandering around the forests with my lovely chocolate Labrador and crazy English pointer! I am actively involved in gundog trialling and have found this to be a great way to keep fit and mix socially with like minded people. Rotorua and the Bay of Plenty has so much to offer-I can’t imagine wanting to live anywhere else!
Ann I joined the Te Ngae Medical team in March 2015. I have lived in Rotorua all my life and completed my nursing training here in 1997. I spend a lot of my spare time training my dogs for obedience competitions; I both compete and judge. My other hobbies are mosaicing and leadlighting – am working my way to leadlighting all the windows in my house. Among my more unusual skills is Bellyancing. I pretend it is for excersie but really it allows me to indulge my weakness for some sparkle!
 Natalie I enjoy all aspects of practice nursing but have a special interest in working with patients with long term conditions such as diabetes. Out of work I am a busy Mum with two lovely boys and daughter.
Achla is very involved in the Rotorua community, when she is not at Te Ngae she can be found at Lakes Primecare or volunteering at Citizens Advice. Achla has three daughters and is also very busy helping on various committees.



Chucky Originally from the Philippines, Chucky and her family immigrated to Auckland before seeing the light and making the move to Rotorua.

Chucky has worked in the Emergency Department at Rotorua Hospital for many years and is a welcome addition to our nursing team.
