Changing Faces At Kaipara Medical Centre


It’s a case of farewell to one doctor and welcome to another at Kaipara Medical Centre this month.

Dr Kathryn Elcock is joining the clinic as a permanent GP from mid-April.

As a fellow of the Royal New Zealand College of GPs she brings with her a wealth of knowledge and experience.

Business Manager Richard Reid says “Kathryn will be a huge asset to our team and with a special interest in women’s health and dermatology and we could potentially extend our range of services in the future.”

Kathryn recently moved to a lifestyle block in the area with her husband Tomos, who is also a GP, and their daughter Matilda.

Meanwhile, after 15 months at the centre, Dr Matthew Woollett is leaving to join a friend in starting up a new GP practice closer to his home.

While he was completing his training Matt also did a stint as a registrar at the Helensville clinic, so many patients will have been treated by him.

Richard Reid says “in a relatively short time, Matt established very good relationships with patients and staff and that will be missed, but we wish him all the very best on his new adventure.”
