Dr Peter Woodward


Clinical Director East Care

Dr Peter Woodward has been working at East Care Urgent Care since 1998. As Clinical Director, he leads our team of Accident and Urgent Care Professionals. This long tenure means Dr Woodward has extensive experience in General Practice and Urgent Care. 

Initially, Peter started as a part-time East Care doctor as an adjunct to General Practice. But slowly, his role evolved to full-time as the Clinical Director of East Care Urgent Care. Squeezing in more study, he attained his Urgent Care Fellowship in 2019. Moreover, he holds diplomas in paediatrics and Obstetrics.

Born and bred in Auckland, Dr Woodward trained extensively in Middlemore and Rotorua Hospitals.
