Margaret has been at Papanui Medical Centre since 1983. She has enjoyed a long association with many families over that time. She likes to be punctual but is happy to spend the extra time with her patients when it is needed. If she is running late there is usually a good reason! For recreation she enjoys walking, gardening, travel, photography and reading. Margaret is married and helped bring up three stepsons. She likes to have a professional interest outside the practice and some of her Wednesdays away from the practice undertakes assessments of general practices for RNZCGP Cornerstone Accreditation.

Dr Metherell is a partner of the practice.
