After obtaining her General Practice Fellowship in Auckland, Dr Kay Drader has worked in various hospitals and clinics in Auckland and England. Kay believes in working alongside patients and empowering through education and understanding.

“I believe that the GP and patient work as equal partners on the health journey. In the consultation we come to an agreement between the doctor and the patient. It’s a meeting of our experience and their experience as themselves, as a person.”

Having trained in the UK and NZ, Dr Marcus Bishop created a vision for Te Atatu Health after working as a General Practitioner in West Auckland for 6 years. Marcus’ concept for a “different” type of GP clinic aligns with his proactive approach to healthcare and technology.

“The key role of a Health Centre in our view is not only to diagnose and treat disease, but also to educate and introduce methods for change. We see immersion in the community as a great way to connect people with lasting support, and actually change the landscape of health in the local area”.

Dr Woollett brings a vast range of experience and a patient centered approach to family medicine.

“I am easy to sit down and yarn to, and pride myself on having a friendly and relaxed style. Instead of being spoken ‘to’, you are the most important part of the equation in my consultations. I’m excited to be bringing the best parts of my experience to the Te Atatu Health team as we continue to grow and develop this clinic into a patient and community centered health hub.”

Lead Nurse

Sarah Mildon is Te Atatu Health’s lead nurse. She’s had almost a decade of experience in a variety of GP clinics and is a Nurse Prescriber which means she can prescribe certain medications for a variety of infections and common long term health concerns.

“I believe in making sure patients feel they’ve been listened to, have had everything well explained and had all their questions answered. This is so important because we often see people when they’re at their most stressed and vulnerable. If it’s outside our scope, we’ll always refer to a doctor. So you actually get a really high standard of care because you end up getting multiple viewpoints.”

Outside of work Sarah enjoys spending time with her husband, their young daughter and their labradoodle.
