Deb Rogers – General Manager / Enrolled Nurse

Deb graduated as an Enrolled Nurse from Epsom & Kingston College of Nursing & Midwifery London, in 1992.  She went on to work at King Edward VII Hospital for Officers, for 4 years, on a busy surgical ward which was where she met her husband Mike – a Kiwi on his OE.

They moved to Auckland in 1996 where Deb worked as a bureau nurse at various Auckland hospitals before being asked to join the bureau team as a consultant.

In 1997 Deb was head-hunted by another nursing agency to be the Manager of the Temp division, where she spent 5 years leading a team of 8 consultants in a very competitive market and was fortunate enough, in this role, to return to the U.K. on several occasions to recruit nurses for New Zealand.

Deb and Mike had their first daughter, Madi, in 2000, and in 2002 they decided to relocate to Hawkes Bay where Mike had grown up. Arriving in Hawkes Bay Deb worked part time as a Nurse at Royston Private Surgical Hospital. Next came their 2nd daughter Chloe. Deb joined the team at Appmed House in February 2006 – and has been part of the wallpaper ever since!

Deb’s current roles are General Manager for Apollo Clinic and she also assists with phlebology procedures.
