Our PracticeMansfield Central General Practice

It is our aim to  provide the Mansfield and district community with the best, most caring, confidential and professional attention to individuals, their families and the wider community. In accordance with this, regardless of race, religion or creed, no one will be turned away when in need of medical attention.

We are an AGPAL Accredited General Practice and our standards are set by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners. The practice is accredited with both Bogong Regional Training Network and the University of Melbourne to train both registrars and medical students in general practice.

You can find us approximately 100m from the CBD and opposite the Mansfield Shire Offices in Highett Street. During the Snow season our doctors participate in administering the medical services at the Mt Buller Medical Centre. We also run outlying clinics at Jamieson, Bonnie Doon and Timbertop (Geelong Grammar School).
