Barwon Heads Family Practice team of doctors

The small team of experienced local doctors offer our community the opportunity to build a relationship with a regular GP, with longer consultations and priority appointments available when required.

We aim to ensure our patients are able to see the doctor they know and trust, when they need to. This consistency of care means we know your medical and family history and take a long-term view to managing your health and wellbeing.

The team at Barwon Heads Family Practice are qualified across a range of areas including general medicine, women’s health, men’s health, kids health, mental health, pregnancy care, chronic diseases, skin checks, preventative health and emergency care. In addition, we also offer vaccinations (including childhood immunisations and travel vaccines), travel medicine and pathology on site.
