Dr Nigel Tay joins the Tend team after gaining experience as a GP in his home country, Singapore.  Nigel gained his medical degree at the National University of Singapore before moving to Aotearoa in 2017.  He has since completed his Fellowship in Urgent Care and also holds a Diploma in Sports Medicine from the International Olympic Council.  Nigel also has a special interest in skin lesions and minor surgery.

An ex-national waterpolo player for Singapore, Nigel competes in the NZ national league and spends most of his free time at the pool and gym.  He hopes to continue his medical education in interventional procedures in musculoskeletal and sports medicine while still finding time to explore Aotearoa’s great walks and beaches.

Areas of interest:

  • Primary care and men's health

  • Sports medicine

  • Skin cancer and minor surgery

  • Urgent care

Medicine isn't just a science, it's an art. I believe that developing a strong connection leads to a greater understanding of your needs, which allows me to gain a deeper understanding of the care that will be best for you.
