We pride ourselves on building rapport with the students to gather the correct information for the best assessment and care.
Keeping Westlake Boys Healthy
Guided by our commitment to health and wellbeing, Westlake Boys Health Centre welcomes all our boys and staff into our facility. We help assess the medical needs of our students and staff to facilitate the appropriate care and services.
Westlake Boys Health Centre considers the wider determinants of biopsychosocial, which focusses on all holistic aspects of the student. Medical conditions are simply not caused by biological factors, but also psychological and social factors.
At Westlake Boys Health Centre we support Te Whare Tapa Wha/The Maori Model of health as it incorporates Taha tinana (physical health), Taha wairua (spiritual health), Taha Whānau (family health) and Taha hinengaro (mental/psychological health/emotional).

Students going home unwell or injured
The best place for an unwell student is at home. If your son has come to school unwell, they will be sent home. Students will need to be collected from the Westlake Health Centre as soon as it is necessary. It is a duty of care from the caregiver to arrive at the Health Centre to collect an unwell or injured student. Any students that require urgent medical care, will be either taken to North Shore Hospital or Shorecare by a staff member. In an emergency, an ambulance will be called.
