College news

A Distinguished Fellow of the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners, Dr Tane Taylor is a critical thinker and strategic advisor to private health organisations and government agencies in New Zealand and internationally. He is a GP Teacher, PRIMEX examiner, Fellowship and Cornerstone Assessor. 

He is currently a consultant to the ETHC Nirvana Group Network in Auckland, and a GP at the Bakerfield Medical Clinic, Manukau.

For six years, he chaired the RNZCGP Maori Faculty: Te Akoranga a Maui. He is a member of the college’s Education Advisory Group. Until earlier this year Tane Chaired the RNZCGP National Advisory Council. Tane was re-elected  as chair of  the Wonca Indigenous and Minority Groups Health Issues Working Party.

As an honorary University of Auckland senior lecturer, and with many years’ experience in the teaching, mentoring and supervision of medical students, house surgeons and registrars, Tane’s main focus is on building, supporting and facilitating integrated learning environments within primary healthcare. He believes that through open and honest collaboration among all stakeholders – PHOs, DHBs, government agencies, universities, general practices and communities – it is possible to deliver a high-quality, efficient and fit for purpose medical workforce ready and willing to serve New Zealand’s diverse peoples and communities.    

I am seeking election as a Board member to continue to serve our members.
