We are a team committed to providing long term comprehensive, professional care to all our patients and visitors in a caring and happy environment.

Our practice has high standards and is proud that we have been accredited by the Australian General Practice Accreditation Ltd (AGPAL) since the inception of practice accreditation.

Our surgery premises are purpose built and are disabled friendly with easy access via a ramp at the front entrance and double doors at ground level at the rear (press bell for staff to attend).

We have off street parking at the side and rear of the building and there is a council car park diagonally across from the surgery.

Practice Update
 
As of Monday 30th March we are no longer seeing patients in practice except where absolutely necessary. Telehealth consultations will be offered to all patients, Doctors and Allied Health will call you to discuss your symptoms. We are trying to keep our doctors, allied health and staff healthy and safe.
 
Please remember social distancing is important for your parents, grandparents and those with illnesses.
 
COVID 19 - Please be aware that the surgery looks different, chairs have been spaced as per social distancing advice, the toys and magazines are temporarily gone, our doctors are working differently to their normal routine, our reception staff are taking longer to book your appointment as we need to triage every patient. We are doing everything possible to keep the practice safe for YOU, our patients. Your patience and understanding through these next few months is appreciated.

The practice has been recording  patient medical records in digital format since 2006.  This enables the doctor to upload a Personally Controlled Electronic Health Record (PCEHR) as part of the Medicare Australia eHealth program when our patient has registered for this service.

We are also able to register you for eHealth here - ask at reception to find out how.

Or you can register yourself at
