Don Medical Clinic is a private GP owned independent practice in Devonport, Tasmania.

We relocated to new purpose-built rooms in April 2018 in a convenient central location which has 5 consulting rooms plus 2 nurse rooms. The clinic has been designed for patient flow and to provide a comfortable space for patients and clinical staff. All rooms are well equipped with modern equipment including electric beds.

Lifestyle in the North West

The North West region of Tasmania is famous worldwide for having some of the most beautiful natural places you can find in Australia. Live in safe and supportive communities close to beautiful coastlines, food trails and breathtaking national parks.

HR+ provide an invaluable service to Practice Managers in Tasmania. Jenny has acted as a mentoring support for me since I commenced at Don Medical Clinic in September 2018, and also supported me through networking events and education during my previous practice manager role in Hobart. Having a mentor like Jenny from HR+ has made a huge difference to me as I find my feet in the challenging world of practice management. I have found the support that HR+ provide, not only with mentoring but also the events put on by the Practice Support team, and the email support networking resources that are regularly provided, are invaluable and I am sure for many other practice managers in the state.
