September heralded a change of ‘guard’ here at Matamata Medical Centre with the arrival of 3 new staff members to the team. Medical Clinic Assistant (MCA) – Vicky Morrissey, a well known local from our farming community, and Practice Nurses – Brooke Stevenson, who comes to us from Hamilton & Sarah Bouton who has returned to us part-time from maternity leave. They are great additions to our team and we are glad to have them with us. Sadly, it is also an opportunity to announce the departure of Marie Healey from our reception team who has accepted the role of medical receptionist in Tauranga – closer to home for her. We will miss her dearly when she leaves us early October and wish her all the best.
