SURGERY OVERVIEW

Durham Road Clinic has been established in the community for over 40years and being the first and longest existing surgery in Sunshine, patient care and evidence based practice is at the core of our philosophy in delivering both preventative and episodic healthcare. Our two principle doctors, that established the surgery 40 years ago, continue to actively care for patients to this day and have a loyal patient following that spans several generations.

We are undergoing a complete cosmetic refurbishment of the surgery but as it does not involve any structural changes this does not affect normal day to day patient care. Durham Road Clinic is only five minutes from the city trains, shopping centres, public hospitals, schools and the business hub of Sunshine.
