My name is Emma Hyslop I would like to introduce myself to those patients that I am taking over the care of from Dr Anna Gilmour, as their lead primary health care provider.
I am Dunedin born and breed and completed my Batchelor of Nursing Degree at Otago Polytechnic over 22 years ago. I have worked in Dunedin at Mercy Hospital in the Operating Theatre after I completed my nursing training specialising in Orthopaedics, this led me to move and live in London for 4 years where I worked in numerous NHS hospitals and private hospitals. I then took on a permanent roll at a private London hospital where I undertook a Diploma at Greenwich University to become a First Assistant (Advanced Scrub Practitioner) working with some world-renowned surgeons. After returning to Dunedin and starting my family I began my career in primary health care where I worked at Musselburgh Medical Centre as a practice nurse for over 8 years. I then moved to Alexandra where I have spent the past 10 years working in rural primary health care which included time working as a clinical nurse specialist in diabetes. At this time, I decided to undertake training into becoming a Nurse Practitioner.
The role of the Matanga Tapuhi/Nurse Practitioner in NZ is an advanced highly skilled role that provides expert level comprehensive healthcare to patients and their whanau, this training took 5-6 years through an academic advanced clinical education programme. This involved completing my master’s degree in health science and developing skills and advanced knowledge within medical and nursing sciences. After completing my master’s degree, I worked in an internship programme with expert general practitioners and an expert nurse practitioner, this involved a strict clinical and academic programme where at the end I had to complete an examination process that allowed me to formally move into the legal scope of a Nurse Practitioner and be able to practice safely as an autonomous lead healthcare provider. Through my training I developed excellent expert clinical skills to be able to manage acute illness, complex long-term conditions, preventative care and complex diagnoses across the lifespan. In New Zealand, nurse practitioners can be lead healthcare providers for health consumers and their families like general practitioners they do not require medical supervision as they have legal authority to work autonomously.
After completing my training, I spent 4 years as a Nurse Practitioner in rural general practice and got to experience the challenges of rural healthcare. I was the lead healthcare provider for over 1500 patients and at times was the sole primary health care provider during after-hours looking after a community of over 6000 which included attending emergencies and running after-hour acute care clinics solo. I worked for Uruuruwhenua Health the local Māori Health Care Provider helping to provide equitable healthcare for all which I loved.
I am passionate about my role as a Nurse Practitioner and love working with patients, whanau and families helping guide them through their healthcare journey. I have a great relationship with my colleagues at Musselburgh and I work collaboratively with all members of the healthcare team. I work across the lifespan and have a special interest in women’s health.
Outside of work I am married to Peter my number one support crew and have 3 children aged 16, 13 and 11 years of age, 2 dogs Zoe and Ruby and 2 cats Mervyn and Jessie. I love nature and we spend lots of time together as a family hiking and spending time outdoors. I enjoy baking, skiing, snowboarding, spending time with family and friends and am currently learning how to play the ukulele.
I look forward to meeting those of you I haven’t meet before and I am excited and feel privileged to work collaboratively with you in your healthcare journey.
