Change of Ownership

After over four years, we sadly say goodbye to Dr Noor. We are grateful for the service and care he has given to the patients of this practice.

However, we are excited to welcome Dr Minhaj Shahid to our practice. Dr Minhaj has worked nearly for the past 20 years in medicine.

He has a wealth of experience due to training in Surgery, Medicine, ED and General practice. He has previous worked in Pakistan, UK and Australia.

His special interests include Cardiology, Enodcrinology, working with children and older patients.He is committed to provide quality care.


Dr Shahid prides himself in being a lifelong learner. 

Dr Shahid will be starting with us on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, with the intention to start working here full time as soon as it is practicable.

Fee Changes

We are posting this to inform all our patients that as of the 1st of March we will be changing our Bulk Billing procedures.

At present we have been bulk billing children aged 16 and under, however, due to changes made by Medicare this is no longer practicable. Therefore, as of the 1st of march we will only be bulk billing children aged 5 and under. Children aged 6 to 16 will be charged at the concessional rate.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this.
