Our Team


Springlands Health’s dynamic team of doctors and nurses brings a wide range of life experience and professional skills. The practice has a strong succession plan, actively recruiting recently qualified GP graduates to complement respected senior staff.

Behind this Marlborough business is practice manager Helen Pauley backed by competent administrators.

Springlands Medical Centre nurses offer services including health advice and checks. They will take your blood pressure, test blood, check sore ears, syringe ears, give vaccinations, check whether you’re pregnant and advise on diet and smoking cessation.

A dedicated phone nurse takes calls during clinic opening hours. Dial the clinic number and press 3 for test results or medical advice.

If our nurses think you need to see a doctor, you’ll be booked for an appointment and if necessary, seen immediately.
