A new doctors’ practice that opened in Murrumbateman on Thursday August 2 will offer a broad range of services, from midwifery to cardiology, psychology and physiotherapy.

Murrumbateman Health Hub, located at Fairley Estate, will be a central location for doctors, nurses, allied health and Laverty Pathology.

Dr Wick, co-owner of the practice with another Dr based in Bathurst, has been practising in Yass for the last six years. He had always wanted to open his own practice and noticed a need for a hub that could offer all services.

Other doctors at Murrumbateman Health Hub include Dr Radeeka, Dr Asitha and Dr Syed Kamal.

Mindy Dominick, practice manager and midwife, worked with Dr Wick in Yass.

She said the family-oriented practice would really like to see a number of services join the hub: “We’re not competition, we just want to work together to improve the health of the community.”

Everyone that works at the practice is local and the doctors will offer a range of expertise including men, women and children’s health (paediatrics), skin cancer checks, chronic disease, nursing support and pathology.

Other services will include ECG, cardiac echo scans and Holter monitoring, a dietitian and bulk billed ultrasound. Podiatry and psychology will start soon.

It’s a mixed billing practice with bulk bill available for pensioners and children under 16.
