Goonellabah Medical Centre

Goonellabah Medical Centre opened in March 1997 when three established local general practices amalgamated to provide a more comprehensive medical service.

The centre is open 6 days a week. The doctors, nursing staff and allied health professionals all contribute to improving your health. A pathology collection centre is open weekdays. There is an area for urgent cases including the facilities necessary for management of acute injuries such as minor fractures and lacerations.

Hospital-based investigations or admission can be arranged for Lismore and St Vincent’s Hospitals. Within Goonellabah Medical Centre computer technology is used for efficient communication and record keeping. Comments are always welcome from our online form, as GMC is always looking to improve services.

Exceptional Medical Expertise and Compassionate Care

At Goonellabah Medical Centre, it is important to simplify your health experience. From our reception staff to our nurses, doctors, medical students and our allied health professionals, we aim to provide you with a caring environment at all times. The principal doctors are Ruth Tinker and David Glendinning. Dianne Kerr has been our general manager since 2015.

Our doctors work individually in their own practices and often have their own special interests. Included in our medical professionals, there are GP registrars (who are fully trained doctors) and medical students. Medical students are welcomed as education of new doctors is an important aspect of GMC and our doctors understand the need to provide a supportive environment in which to learn.
