Leanne has nearly fifteen years of nursing experience, most of which has been based in Primary Health Care.  She has worked in a range of practice nurse areas including; practice nursing, palliative care; community support with Mothers and pepi and has finally found her niche in women’s health where she has spent the last five years focusing on cervical screening, breast screening and sexual health.

In July 2012 Leanne started her own business Leanne Lloyd Ltd which focused on developing screening services to best suit the needs of women in Canterbury.  While Leanne continues to develop screening services she continues to undertake service contracts with the Christchurch Primary Health Organisation General Practitioner clinics to increase screening statistics for priority women.  Leanne also has service contracts with a Māori health provider in Kaikoura, and other general practitioner practices in Christchurch and she does some  locum work as a practice nurse for the Pacific Trust Health Centre.
