Dr. Marie Burke


Originally from the UK, I came to New Zealand in 1997.
I have been a GP for over 20 years and I also have interests in Medical Education, Youth Health and Forensic Medicine.
I relax by reading, gardening, walking, watching films and cycling to work (yes  – even in East Christchurch!)

  Dr Emma Locke


I am originally from Shropshire, England.  I came to New Zealand in 2002, and worked in Timaru and Christchurch hospitals before training in General Practice.  I enjoy the “general” and varied nature of General Practice.  After 8 years working in General Practice in eastern Christchurch, I am excited to join the team at EastCare Health.

In my time out, I enjoy the challenges of parenting, and riding bikes for fun and fitness.

Dr Tessa Gallivan

Originally from Christchurch I did my training in Melbourne, Australia where I worked in various hospitals and GP clinics for a few years. I moved back to Christchurch in 2020 and have been lucky to join the Eastcare team. I enjoy all aspects of GP and have special interests in women’s and children’s health.

Outside of work I enjoy exploring the outdoors with my family, baking and playing hockey!

I will be on maternity leave from 22/4/22.
