Our philosophy

Your health is our shared journey

Our philosophy Your health is our shared journey is not just a set of warm fuzzy words – it’s a genuine reflection of over 45 years of dedicated service to our community. In the true spirit of the country practice your doctors continue to take care of the health needs of up to three generations within many of our region’s families. For us – taking care of your health needs is a professional, shared journey based on mutual knowledge and respect.

Our Anti-discrimination Policy

The doctors and staff at Queen Street Medical Centre are committed to treating patients with respect, courtesy, compassion and understanding at all times.

Our two general practices are AGPAL accredited – what does this mean?

Being accredited means that our general practices at Moruya and Broulee are committed to a comprehensive program which involves:

You may be surprised to learn that general practice accreditation is a voluntary process – which means not all practices undergo an independent on-site assessment on a regular basis. Achievement of AGPAL accreditation reassures you that our doctors and practice team are committed to providing you with high quality health care in a safe environment.

Our commitment to GP vocational training

For many years our practice has participated in the vocational education and training of GP registrars and overseas trained doctors (OTD) – many of our doctors began their general practice career as either a registrar or an OTD under supervised training with our practice. In this regard, we continue to attract talented and dedicated doctors to our region.

Queen Street Medical Centre is pleased to work with the training organisations who oversee this training – Rural Doctors Network (RDN), Royal College of General Prctitioners (RACGP) and the Australian College of Remote and Rural Medicine (ACRRM).

Queen Street Medical Centre GP Partners Dr Les Roberts Thomson and Dr Neil Starmer, are dual accredited to deliver training programmes for both training oragnaisations for RACGP and ACRRM. Also Dr Eliza Dally and Dr Kimberley Benson are also accredited supervisors for these organisations, and assist in the training and supervising of our registrars.
