Brendon Turner

Brendon is a registered nurse with a background in Emergency and General Practice nursing. His career has also taken through Intensive Care units, Operating Theatres, Australian Outback Nursing, the New Zealand Blood Service, and Occupational Health Nursing


Brendon is passionate about preventative health and believes it far more important to help keep people fit and able than it is to catch them once they have fallen, but, if they do fall the harm can be greatly reduced if you are surrounded by people who know what to do. Good knowledge is fundamental to good health, good health is fundamental to a good life!
