Dr Carolyn Richards Owner

After moving to Mandurah in the late '90s,  she started Metceni Health in 2005. She chose to retire from clinical work  in 2015, for medical reasons. Now she works in management and provides photos for the walls. 


Bec is always a friendly face at the front desk who balances caring for her family and dog  and caring for our patients. Having been at the practice quite a few years she knows many of our regulars. 

Kerrie - receptionist

Kerry likes to keep herself warm and maintain a warm and happy atmosphere for patients! She also knows many of our patients and their special needs!

Ezra - receptionist

Ezra has close links with one of the other team members and is our youngest member. He is maintaining our gender diversity whilst deciding whether this is where he wants to stay or whether to branch out. 

Our Nurses

Measuring, informing, treating, advising and calming are just some of what we do.


Irene enjoys the GP setting at Metceni but also works with patients in their homes in another role. She creates a caring environment. 


As well as working with patients, Chris enjoys getting about in Australia. She never looks stressed but understands how stressful being sick can be. 


Our younger Nurse, Kim has the joy of balancing a younger family with work! Luckily she enjoys her work and helping others.
