Chrissy has 30 years nursing experience, most recently as Intra-operative Theatre Nurse Coordinator for Gisborne Hospital’s Surgical Services. Chrissy will help Skin Deep Clinic maintain best practice and also help drive the further expansion of specialist medical and surgical services people can access at Skin Deep with minimal waiting, as well as its comprehensive range of modern appearance medicine.
This will give Dr Anuya Deshpande more time with patients, and Chrissy will also help keep Skin Deep’s nurses fully trained and developing their careers.
“We’re going to keep those medical health and safety disciplines up, and stay at the top of our game. I also know what it takes to make people feel happy and relaxed in a treatment situation, and we will continue to offer outstanding efficient service to all our patients.
“After so long working in hospitals I love dealing with ‘well people’ -- that’s really refreshing. I love the flexibility Skin Deep gives me to be there more for my family as well.
