About OH Direct

OH Direct was founded in 2010 by registered nurse Jennie Woods, to provide occupational health services to the Taranaki region.

With increasing demand for occupational health services, and new legislation focusing on worker health, OH Direct saw the need to expand to work with businesses around Taranaki. This was achieved by setting up an innovative mobile clinic run from a fully equipped van, with access to tailored Occupation Health Services.

OH Direct provides a full range of occupational health services for all your workplace needs, including pre-employment medicals, health monitoring, drug and alcohol testing and wellbeing programmes. Clients can opt to have their staff visit the OH Direct office in central New Plymouth, or to use the mobile service – and OH Direct will visit them on site.

As of June 2021, Jennie has taken an exciting step towards semi-retirement and OH Direct is now under new ownership by nurse Sophie Young. Jennie will continue to provide support to Sophie during this time to ensure the same consistent and high service is provided to existing and new clients.
