Where to find Valley Road Medical Centre
Located in Davenport in Northern Tasmania, we are situated at the mouth of the Mersey River.
You’ll find a carpark at the rear of the practice, along with paid parking on the streets surrounding the clinic.
Our centre has 12 consulting rooms and 2 treatment rooms.
We operate an appointment system but do keep some appointments open for urgent consultations. You can make an appointment with your doctor by telephoning the surgery.
Standard consultations are 10 minutes duration. This may change if there has been emergencies or if the surgery is very busy. The doctor is able to address one medical problem per consultation, which allows that problem to be dealt with thoroughly and comprehensively, and to allow miscellaneous related issues to be addressed.
Longer appointments can be made though will incur a private fee.
Home visits are available by prior arrangements with the receptionist and as clinically required after discussion with the treating doctor.
You will be informed if fees apply.
