Our Careteam

Mrs Vanessa Joseph

Cert IV nurse

We welcomed Vanessa Joseph to our teams at Arundel and Ormeau in June 2017. She is a very experienced nurse having worked with Dr Robert for a number of years in an Emergency centre.
Vanessa is ideally suited to the amount of intensive care and high end diagnostic work we perform and, is proving a valuable addition to both clinics.
