Shortland Street is a New Zealand soap opera set in and around Shortland Street Hospital, a modern metropolitan hospital in the fictitious Auckland suburb of Ferndale. ...


She is the receptionist at the Shortland Street medical centre. Yvonne and her husband Ian moved from their quiet country orchard to the bustling environs of Ferndale when Ian was diagnosed with the debilitating Motor Neurone Disease. He then had news that this was a misdiagnosis and he actually had Kennedy's Disease. The motor neurone diseases (MND) are a group of progressive neurological disorders that destroy motor neurones, the cells that control voluntary muscle activity such as speaking, walking, breathing, and swallowing. ... Kennedys disease (KD) or X-linked spinal-bulbar muscular atrophy (SBMA) is a neuromuscular disease associated with mutations of the androgen receptor (AR). ...


Yvonne's life took an unexpected turn for the better last year when the son she adopted out at birth, Hamish Flynn, made contact with her. Hamish had briefly worked at the hospital for Huia Samuels. It turned out that her long-lost "son" was really a con-man who had stolen Hamish's identity and set out to scam her and Ian for their last penny. Yvonne did eventually meet her real birth son but he didn't want further contact but was allowed a photo of him. Huia Samuels was a fictional character in the New Zealand soap opera Shortland Street. ...


She is portrayed by Alison Quigan.
