Timely, Professional and Straight Forward
Thanks for organising our annual flu vaccinations this year Noreen, it was an absolute pleasure dealing with you. We were extremely impressed with your professionalism in conducting our vaccinations in our small office. After previously having flu vaccinations as part of a bigger firm in previous years, we were very happy that you could cater for our smaller office as well. The process was organised by email and was very straight forward to manage. We would highly recommend Noreen and Gold Coast Nurse Professionals to any professional office looking at having a flu vaccination.

Gold Coast Nurse Professionals have provided ‘flu vaccinations to St Andrews Lutheran College since 2008.
Noreen Burke-Martin and her team are always professional. Our staff have come to trust them and they have certainly mastered the art of administering “needles”. Even those who are a little “shy” of being subjected to a needle know they can trust Noreen and are amazed that it is done even before they realize it!
Not only does GCNP offer ‘flu vaccinations but they are also able to administer others such as the triple antigen for Pertussis (Whooping Cough), Tetanus and Diphtheria.
See you in time for the 2018 ‘flu season Noreen.

“We were once again able to offer our staff their annual flu vaccinations thanks to the great service provided by Noreen, Gold Coast Nurse Professionals. Since 2010 Noreen has been attending our head office and vaccinating the many staff who opt to take part, thus ensuring they have a flu free winter. She inoculates so expertly and efficiently that it’s all over in the blink of an eye and I have not heard one recipient ever say they had any discomfort even though a few were anxious. It’s important for us to maintain a healthy work environment, so keep up the great work Noreen and thanks from us all at Coral Homes.”
