History Of The Practice
The practice was formed in the late 1960s, when the town practices of Drs Dixon, Ramage and Burke amalgamated. It moved into its current health centre premises in 1968. Dr Mowbray joined in 1981, Dr Dervan in 1986, both having been trainees here. (Dr Dervan retired in 2012 and Dr Mowbray the following year.) Dr Bristow joined in 1993, Dr Tucker in 1994, Dr Privonitz in 1995, Dr McCarthy in 1997 and Dr Master in 2012. Drs Wooding and Brosnan joined the practice in 2013 on a part-time basis.
The health centre stands on Plane Tree Road, opposite the Memorial Clock Tower. Parking can be difficult but we do reserve a space for disabled patients in front of the surgery on Plane Tree Road; behind it on Bay Street; and there is a large car park available under the railway bridge and Beech Street.
There is easy access for the disabled, via a ramped footpath from Plane Tree Road. A wheelchair is available.
