The BSMP Team

Bowral Street Medical Practice has a fantastic team of friendly, highly experienced and trained doctors. They have a variety of areas of special interest across all areas of general practice including paediatrics, chronic care, skin, women’s health, men’s health, feeding and lactation support, ante-natal shared care, etc.

Many of our doctors work part-time which is becoming more common in general practice and allows doctors to explore other interests and maintain a good work/life balance which ultimately results in an extended career in general practice.

Continuity of care is very important and for this reason we would encourage patients to have a “backup” doctor so if their usual doctor is not available they can see someone who they know and feel comfortable with.

Please contact the practice on 4861 3183 to find out more about and doctors and who would be a good fit for your health needs.
