Welcome to Counties Medical Integrated Health, covering Takanini, Papakura and beyond, since 1990
Takanini Care Accident & Medical clinic was formed in 1990 by few of the general practitioners working in South Auckland to provide after hours care to the local community. It is located on 106 Great South Road, Takanini. Since then a number of GPs working in South Auckland have joined the organisation to extend their service to their enrolled patients.
In 1997, Counties Care Accident & Medical Clinic, in Papakura was established.
Takanini Family Health and Counties Family Health clinics are general practices which were established in 2008 and 2009 respectively and located at 106 Great South Road, Takanini and 6-18 O’Shannessey Street, Papakura.
We have a highly skilled and dedicated team of doctors, nurses and receptionists who are committed to their roles in providing a high standard of service to all.
Our practices are happy to discuss any treatments with you and to help you achieve the health you deserve.
GP Clinic farewells Dr Melanie Abernethy end July
Sadly, Dr Melanie Abernethy is finishing up as a GP at Counties Medical. Her last day will be Thursday 27th July.
Melanie has been a GP in Papakura for 27 years including as a GP obstetrician for the first 20 years. She has worked for Counties Medical for the last 5 years. Prior to that, Melanie was a solo GP at Roselands Health Centre. She has worked as the Medical Director for Counties Medical in conjunction with her GP work and also as a Director, on the Board of Counties Medical.
Melanie herself has always been passionate about providing a great service to our patients and ensuring that good quality general practice continues long after she has retired. Hence she is very keen to support the new group of younger doctors coming through. Melanie has been key in making our GP practice accessible to everyone, especially those with disabilities and as such worked with the team in the new building design.
