- Our Team

We are very lucky to have such a dedicated team of doctors and nurses at Amberley Medical Centre. Most of our team also live locally and appreciate the importance of a reliable rural medical service.

Mary Foster – Practice Nurse

I am a long-time resident of the Hurunui District. My five children were born and raised in the area. I have a strong connection with the community having worked at Waikari Hospital and as a District Nurse and now as a Practice Nurse at Amberley Medical Centre.


I am passionate about providing a rural health service that meets the needs of rural people and this is why I have become involved in the ownership of Amberley Medical Centre.


Mental Health is of special interest to me and I have been training in a Diploma of Psychosythesis counselling over the last three years. This has complimented my nursing practice and also benefitted my own personal growth. I believe that physical, mental and emotional health are deeply entwined and need to be treated in an integrated and holistic manner and this is how I approach my practice as a nurse.
