Five general practitioners in West Auckland – Dr Craig King, Dr Vicky Macdonald, the late Dr Philip Rushmer, Dr Maelen Tagelagi and Dr Peter Woolford are the driving force behind Health New Lynn which opened in April 2013. The GPs wanted to establish a strong community-based health care centre where their patients could receive coordinated health services in a community setting beyond that which each individual practice could provide.
Health New Lynn is the amalgamation of Golf Road Medical Centre, Kinross Family Medical Centre, New Lynn Medical Centre and Titirangi Family Health Care practices.
The facility is based around a core of general practice services, but is in no way limited to this. An extended hours urgent care service is fully integrated with the general practice.
Nursing services will be highly valued and expanded allowing an increased role in managing your care. Skilled practice and specialist nurses will provide a range of nursing interventions from the centre.
We continue to work with District Health Boards to identify services which can be provided from the centre.
