At dinner together one night in 2018, Dr Juliet Tay and Rebecca Fenn, Nurse Practitioner pondered the big question "How can we do it better"?. 

Rebecca, then working in Middlemore Hospital Emergency department, and Juliet working at Greenstone clinic, were musing over how they could improve health outcomes for the South Auckland community. They concluded that the best way to do it was by bus to bring healthcare to the community.
