The Goonellabah Medical Centre started the Alstonville Lismore After Hours Medical Service (ALAHMS) in 1999. The Service provided a doctor for consultation by appointment at the Centre on Saturdays and Sundays and most public holidays. Over the years the Service has been manned by doctors from Alstonville Medical Centre and Prema House as well as those from the Goonellabah Medical Centre.
Federal government changed the formula for after hours funding in 2015 to support home visiting services. As a result the ALAHM Service terminated on 15 July 2016.
The Goonellabah Medical Centre (GMC) will continue to open on Saturdays from 9 am to 3 pm for patients requiring medical attention.
Outside surgery hours GMC patients can ring our oncall doctor on 02 6625 0047
