At Mullumbimby Comprehensive Health Care
We believe that good health starts within. Dedicated to providing the highest quality health services, our team brings together expertise from modern western medicine, allied health and complementary therapies.
Putting Patients First
We put patients first in delivering comprehensive health care services for our community. Our GPs, dentists, nurses, specialists and patient support staff are compassionate and highly experienced in caring for individuals and families. We are also pioneering collaborative approaches to optimise our health care, including innovative team-based models where medical, allied and nursing staff work together to enhance patients’ experiences and continuity of care.
We offer an increasing range of health education programs for disease prevention and to help people maintain wellness at all stages of life. As a leading regional health centre, we enable ongoing learning and collaboration for better care outcomes. We provide educational opportunities for our qualified GPs, registrars in training and visiting medical students. We also foster shared learning among our health professional teams.
We aim to support people to become informed, empowered and proactive about their wellbeing. Across all our services, programs, partnerships, we strive to help people to optimise their health and so contribute to a healthier community.
Mullumbimby Comprehensive Health Centre builds upon a long local history, founded in 1987 and continuing strong as a family-centred practice and region. Newly expanded in 2019, we offer highly advanced accessible and purpose-built facilities to serve you and your family.
AGPAL Accredited Practice
Accreditation is a voluntary process that ensures that a practice has met standards of safety and quality. The standards are set by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) and practices are assessed against these standards by an independent, not-for-profit organisation (not a part of the government).
Meeting these standards means:
- We respect your rights and needs
- We offer a safe place for your care
- We are committed to improving your health
- We use safe and sterile equipment
- We are committed to ongoing education & training, and
- We are committed to continuous quality improvement.
The practitioners and staff at this practice are proud to have continuously met these standards for over 10 years now and will continue to do so into the future.
We also take pride with providing you holistic and comprehensive care
Educating the next generation of GPs
The medical centre has a long history as a teaching practice, providing guidance and supervision to registrars in the final stages of their GP training and visiting medical students.
We are an accredited teaching practice for 15+ years, regularly taking University of Sydney, Bond University, Griffith University, University of Western Sydney and year long University of Wollongong students. Medical students spend weeks at a time in our practice, working side-by-side with our doctors, learning about family medicine. University of Wollongong students attend the practice for two days a week for one year as part of their studies.
You will be asked in advance for your consent to allow a medical student to be present during your consultation. This is entirely optional and where appropriate, your consent will help us to educate our doctors of the future.
We believe that our practice is able to provide a higher quality of medical care for our patients through our ongoing commitment to medical education.
Medical students and registrars often return back to the area they did their placements in to practice medicine.
A comprehensive approach to health
Mullumbimby Comprehensive Health Centre is committed to patient wellbeing and disease prevention. Having a full range of health services available has ensured that patients can access their choice of health care easily and readily – whether that be general medicine or allied health therapies.
As well as a large team of doctors practicing family medicine, the centre also offers a skin clinic, women’s and men’s health checks, travel vaccinations, psychology and mental health practitioners and a Better Health Clinic for patients with a need for chronic disease treatment plans; alongside of a team of allied health practitioners.
Meridian Holistic Dental
The second floor of our Allied Health Centre is home to Meridian Holistic Dental. We believe this is a great addition to the services on offer and gives our patients access to the very best health practitioners in the area all under the same roof.
The approach of a holistic dentist is to view the patient as a whole being. This means not just looking at the physical and biological aspects of a person but also taking into account the emotional and spiritual aspects too. All of these things make up a vital functioning person.
Not only this, but the teeth, jaw and health of the mouth have an enormous impact on general health and wellbeing. Dentists at Meridian Holistic Dental will be working closely with the team of GPs, musculo-skeletal specialists and other complimentary health practitioners at Mullumbimby Comprehensive Health Centre, to ensure a truly holistic experience for all our patients.
