Equity Project Lead Award

Congratulations to our PCPA Jack! 

Congratulations to Jack (he/him), our Primary Care Practice Assistant (PCPA) and Equity Champion / Kaiāwhina Mana Taurite, who was the recipient of the Health Care Home Equity Project Lead award at the Health Care Home Celebration last night! 

39 practices across Upoko o te Ika a Māui - including The Terrace Medical Centre - are part of the Health Care Home programme, which aims to provide a sustainable healthcare workforce and proactive model of care to our communities. Eight different awards were presented last night and we're thrilled that Jack took away the Equity Project Lead award.  

Jack received this award in recognition of the work he has done in developing, leading, and implementing projects to improve equity for our patients who are part of marginilised communities. This work has included reworking our Māori Health Plan, heading projects to improve cervical screening rates amongst Māori, Pasifika, and Asian patients and HPV immunisation rates amongst rangatahi Māori, developing guides to local Māori-led and Pasifika-led services and to services by and for the LGBT+ community, educating our team and others on barriers to access faced by the trans community and working to remove those barriers, developing trans-inclusive healthcare resources, and more. Well done Jack!
