I am proud to be a member of the wonderful Rātā team. I enjoy the variety, the challenges and the rewards of General Practice.
Qualifications: MBChB, DA, DRCOG, FP Cert, MRCGP, FRNZCGP, PGDipGP
Special interests: youth and families, mental health, palliative care, sleep medicine
I love my work as a GP and feel privileged to provide care to our patients.
I strongly believe in the importance of being ‘patient-centred’ and of relationships in healthcare, and through working together to be an advocate for you.
Outside the practice I do weekend and on-call work for the Nelson-Tasman Region Hospice. To relax, I enjoy life on a rural property, outdoor activities (including kayaking and cycling), books, art and travel. I have lived and worked in the Nelson-Tasman region for over 20 years now, I have brought up a family here and feel lucky to call it home.
Dr Vivien Edge is available on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday
