Newtown Medical Centre has been open for over 80 years.  In May 2018 the practice was bought by two of the Newtown GP’s, Cath Donaldson and James Carter.  The past 18 months have been busy building our practice, implementing new systems and processes and building our team.  We are just about to start our refit and our new website should be up and running by early October. Our apologies for the slightly out of date information but if there is anything you would like clarified please give us a call on 5221 5044 and speak to the Business Manager, Jen Flakemore or practice principals (and supervisors) Cath Donaldson and James Carter.

The clinic is a family medical practice with a wide variety of patients from across Geelong and steady growth.  A great opportunity for a registrar to build a patient base and become involved in our Newtown family.
