Welcome to Holsworthy Medical Centre
Holsworthy Medical Centre serves Holsworthy as well as its surrounding villages. Our team includes GPs, a nurse practitioner, practice nurses, health care assistants and phlebotomists as well as our practice management and administrative support teams.
We are responsible for advising patients on leading a healthy lifestyle as well as caring for the sick. We offer a full general practice service and run specialist clinics as indicated in this website. There is also an on-site dispensing service.
At Holsworthy Medical Centre we aim to treat all our patients promptly, courteously and in complete confidence. We feel it is important that you know who you are speaking to, so our office staff wear a name badge and identify themselves on the telephone.
