  • Georgina Boucher
    I joined Aspen in 2022 after spending over 10 years in primary care at the local hospitals, working in a variety of settings but mainly in orthopaedics and acute care. I have loved the change of environment, skills and perspective that primary care offers, but I do like to keep my hand in at GRH working shifts most weeks! I enjoy all the skills that a Practice Nurse offers – I am also one of the respiratory nurses here at Aspen as well as having a vested interest in women’s health. When I am not at work I love to travel to new places with my fiancé & spend time with our Labrador Willow.
