3R Lydia Ohuka

She will see three to four patients a day concerned about just one mole, or those that want a thorough head-to-toe examination. Images of moles are then sent to dermatologists for diagnosis.

Lydia is a qualified nurse born in Gisborne and raised in the South Island. She enjoys working in primary care and when she is not at work is a busy mum with two children.

Lydia reminds patients that if melanomas are detected early they are almost 100 percent treatable.
