Norlane residents have access to a local medical service following the opening of Labuan Square Medical Centre. The medical centre opened as part of a revitalisation the shopping centre and adjoins the pharmacy.
Residents have responded well to the service, which offers bulk-billing Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm. A pathologist is available in the clinic every morning.
Practice administration manager Sunu Varghese said the practice opened in response to an obvious need for medical services in Norlane. It is saving residents from having to travel out of the area for medical care.
Ms Varghese said there is a rotation of GPs who are highly trained and able to provide care in multiples areas including diabetic management, antenatal (shared) care, medication reviews, women’s health, asthma assessment and management, childhood vaccinations, counselling services and mental health assessments.
A podiatrist started at the medical clinic in December, and a physiotherapist and psychologist will also be available onsite regularly. Ms Varghese said future plans for the clinic include additional doctors and extended hours if there is demand.
Labuan Square Medical Centre is at 19 Labuan Square. For appointments phone 5272-3233. Walk-ins are also welcome.
