Margaret Phillips

Margaret Phillips is a Registered Professional Nurse, Midwife, Psychiatric Nurse and a Rheumatology Nurse Practitioner.

She began her career in health care by working as an Enrolled Nursing Assistant, when she was only 17 years old.

Since that time, she has logged forty eight years of experience in various areas of patient care. Margaret completed a Certificate Course in Rheumatology in 1999,

Margaret has been the Rheumatology (Arthritis) Nurse Practitioner at Groote Schuur Hospital/UCT since 2000.

Margaret’s combination of clinical education and experience provide a strong foundation for the kind of holistic approach to patients that she feels is critical to good patient care – holistic care that considers not only the physical aspects of a patient’s illness, but the emotional and spiritual aspects as well. She believes that healing and wholeness are matters of body, mind, and spirit.
