Given the current COVID-19 environment we have temporarily disabled our ‘feedback’ feature. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Since 1971, Drake Medox NZ has been a respected provider of disability and homecare services recruiting healthcare professionals, registered nurses and homecare support workers across New Zealand. We provide a range of services for serious injury and complex care clients funded by the ACC, Ministry of Health and privately funded clients.
“I switched to Drake Medox and I could not be happier. At my previous agency I felt like I was just another ACC client on their books...With Drake it feels like everyone in their office knows who I am and they really listen when I talk to them. Aside from the great support workers they provide, the Warriors tickets, Christmas parties and movie nights definitely make them an agency I plan to stick with for a long time.”
