Our Team

Mandeeps Manage  
  • Faye Clarke

    Faye Clarke

    Medical Centre Manager

    I have spent a number of years in primary care, and my health care journey started on the Hibiscus Coast over 10 years ago.  I have since worked on the North Shore, and before joining the team at Red Beach in September 2018, I spent four years as the practice manager at a large West Auckland medical centre.  

    I have a passion for health care and making a difference, and I strive to provide a high level of support, to the environment in which I work, it's team members, and the patients we care for.

    I enjoy the challenges that a busy clinic like Red Beach brings!

    I love travelling with my husband, and like getting lost in a good book.  I have two lovely grown-up daughters, and more recently have been blessed with a beautiful granddaughter!

    Dr Patch Graham

    GP & Urgent Care Doctor (MB BS, FRNZCGP, DA, Dip Obst)

    Dr Patch Graham works with our GP team Monday to Friday, and also works in our Urgent Care Clinic.

    Born in the UK to a five generation family of GPs, I ran away to New Zealand in 1982, starting out as a medical officer and anaesthetist at Taumarunui Hospital.  Following 20 years in my own practice in Richmond, Nelson, I have spent the last decade in Auckland, initially working with accident and medical clinics and latterly as a medical officer for a developing specialist residential care practice.

    I now live in Whangaparaoa, which means a new challenge with The Doctors Red Beach, and hopefully less time fighting against the traffic!

    Away from work, I love to sail and hope the Peninsula will provide some new opportunities for that.  I have four boys, some now overseas, and I am enjoying setting up a new home here with my wife, Louise, and two Shitzu-Poodle 'fur kids'.

What does this mean for you as a patient?

  • The order cannot be lost.
  • You can still go to any Labtests, and the staff will be able to look up the order.
  • No need to phone the practice for reprints or faxes.
  • You can request a copy of the form if you prefer, but it is not necessary.
  • Doctors can track the progress of your order as it goes through the laboratory.

Nurse Phones

Our nurse team is often inundated with calls and messages and they do their very best to respond to everyone's requests as quickly as possible.  A few points to note:

  • The nurses are often dealing with patients in the practice and won't necessarily see your message straight away

  • If your request is urgent, please speak to the reception desk, or if you have a health emergency dial 111 and request an ambulance 

  • Prescriptions can be ordered through our online portal, ConnectMed, and this way your request will go straight to the doctor

  • The nurse team will endeavour to call you back within 4 hours, if you have called before midday - otherwise, by the following business day (Mon-Fri)

  • You can also email the nurse at nurse@rb.thedoctors.co.nz
