Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

Teleconference advice is available to BMC patients from our doctors. Phone the surgery to request this and the doctor will phone you.

Those eligible are: people who have been told to self isolate or believe they need to due to contact with CV or have arrived in Australia from overseas. Also those at high risk:

Anyone who feels they have a severe respiratory illness should attend an emergency department. Other BMC patients need to phone for an appointment. Please let receptionist staff know if you have a cough, cold, sore throat or fever as you might need advice about testing for Covid19.

You will be informed whether you should enter the medical centre or wait outside for staff to come and attend to you. You will need to be assessed as to whether you need testing for Covid19.

our history

In 1988, Dr Jane Barker joined Dr Carol Brown and Dr David Smith and the Bangalow Medical Centre was founded. Dr Graham Truswell joined the team in 1993.

Back in those days the practice operated from Granuaille Road. In 1996 we moved premises to our current location on the site of the old Bangalow Motel on Ballina Road.
