Our Doctors and Nurses

 

Remember when you had one GP for the whole family?
We can offer you that.

 
At BMC we encourage you to have a regular family doctor. Sometimes your regular doctor won’t have an available appointment on the day and time that suits you best. We’ll offer you an alternative day and time or an alternative doctor from our experienced team. Requests for urgent consultations will be referred by our staff to one of our doctors for a decision on how best to care for you, if other patients have booked all available appointments for that day. After 5:00pm please call 13HEALTH or visit Beaudesert Hospital
