West Harbour Medical Centre was started by Doctor Philip Haggo in 1987. West Harbour Medical Centre is a CORNERSTONE accredited practice and has won numerous awards year after year for meeting numerous health targets set by the Ministry of Health thanks to Dr Haggo’s hard work in looking after the community. The new management and doctors look forward to continuing looking after you and your family.
CORNERSTONE is an accreditation programme specifically designed by the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners for general practices in New Zealand that assess the level of performance in relation to established standards and to implement ways to continuously improve the health care system.
CORNERSTONE is a combined quality improvement and quality assurance process which allows a practice to measure themselves against a defined set of standards titled Aiming for Excellence – standard for New Zealand general practice.
Aiming for Excellence contains a range of indicators and criteria that describe minimum legal and safety standards and covers other significant areas of risk, as defined by the College. CORNERSTONE assessors are peers who undertake an external assessment of the general practice.
