Welcome to Westend Medical
To assist you in achieving health… In mind and body
Westend Medical is a family focussed medical centre offering a full range of general practice services. Our friendly team of experienced doctors nurses and administrative staff are dedicated to providing the best possible healthcare to our patients.
Our vision is to make health education a key part of our practice.
Equity as defined by the New Zealand Ministry of Health is a fundamental consideration in the Aotearoa New Zealand health care system.
In Aotearoa New Zealand, people have differences in health that are not only avoidable, but unfair and unjust. Equity recognises different people with different levels of advantage, require different approaches and resources to get equitable health outcomes.
Pro-equity is the practice of actively working toward achieving equitable health outcomes.
Westend Medical is a pro-equity practice. We strive to understand and address bias, work in a culturally safe manner and create an inclusive and culturally safe experience for our patients, whanau, families and the communities we serve.
