Bridget Farrant

I’m a Youth Health Doctor working at Counties Manakau, and I have been here for some years working out of Centre for Youth Health which is part of Kids First (we are a specialist service coming through from the hospital but based in the community). I also work at Auckland University as part of the post-graduate youth health programme and part of their youth health research group. I’m incredibly passionate about both workforce development and ensuring that we have a highly-skilled workforce to work with young people and improve their outcomes. I also have quite a bit of interest in health services and health service delivery alongside young people with chronic health conditions often interfacing with hospitals, particularly for a growing number of young people, developing a service around young people with chronic pain.
