Dr Andrew Miller (Interim Chair)
GP Partner at Bush Road Medical Centre, Clinical Lead Neighbour Healthcare Homes Northland DHB, Clinical Director of Information Services Northland DHB
I’ve been GP at Bush Road Medical Centre, Kamo for the last 25 years. The long- term relationships and continuity of care with my patients is what makes my job gratifying. In my view the future of general practice will be about building a team and providing coordinated services that responds to the stories we hear that are impacting on people’s well-being.
I was a member of the Manaia Health PHO board since its inception and was the Chair for the last eight years. I lead the PHO through the transition and wind-up process. The existing organisation structures in Northland were hampering achieving acceptable health and well-being outcomes for Northlanders. The Mahitahi vision of self-determined wellbeing and whanau centred care give us all a chance to take local leadership and responsibility for each other’s well-being which is exciting.
