Nurse Practitioner

The Otaki Medical Centre would like to welcome Catherine Parata to our team. Catherine is a local who grew up in Manakau and attended Otaki College. Nurse Practitioners work directly with patients. NP’s can diagnose and manage most common and many chronic illnesses. They are authorised to perform physical examinations, order and interpret diagnostic tests, provide counselling, education and write prescriptions. Catherine will be a valuable contribution to our community.
