Dr Elayne Knottenbelt
Medlab Central, Medlab Wanganui
Elayne is a Haematologist working for Medlab Central and MidCentral Health since 1989, enjoying the complete patient management of the specialty from clinical assessment to diagnosis and management. To have the laboratory within the hospital makes this easy and efficient. As Palmerston North is the centre for the Regional Cancer Treatment Service, she helps provide the clinical and laboratory services for the region including Hawkes Bay, Wanganui, Taranaki, Wairarapa and Tarawhiti Districts. As a mother of three children this has always been a part time commitment, made possible by the easy living in Palmerston North with everything only a few minutes drive away and a good collegial team of haematologists and pathologists.
