Alison is a Clinical Nurse Specialist, who combines her work in Dr Manolitsas practise with work on the Gynaecology ward at Cabrini Hospital Malvern. She has worked on the hospital wards with Dr Manolitsas for almost 20 years and in the last 5 years has transitioned to part time work in his private rooms. This means that many patients will have the good fortune of seeing a familiar face on the hospital ward if they do need to have surgery. Alison brings vast practical experience to her role and is an indispensable member of the team. Alison has three teenage girls and an energetic border collie, who keep her busy. She also enjoys relaxing with her family at Phillip Island, especially in the summer.
