Each doctor practises independently and each has access to all the clinic facilities for your care.
DO YOU HAVE SERVICES OTHER THAN A DOCTOR?
The clinic is fortunate to have two very long-standing skilled, dedicated and experienced Registered Nurses. Both RNs are very well qualified and have many years of experience in hospital and GP based nursing. Their special skills enable the practice to be more holistic when caring for you. The Clinic has a great team of reception staff upskilled to give you the best “front of house” experience. Each doctor endeavours to engage the best and widest choice in your care from outside the clinic for any Allied Health Professionals that you need. For you, this ensures help is tailored to your needs.
