Access to local allied health practitioners includes referral pathways to a physiotherapist, diabetes educator, dietitian, podiatrist, psychologist, social worker, remedial masseuse and child & family health nurse.

The practitioners and staff are excited about their expansion and vision for future innovative, efficient healthcare, and are keen for the new GP to live in the area and embrace the lifestyle of living and working in a country practice.
