Ochre Health Medical Centre Barrack Street

Ochre Medical Centre Barrack Street (previously Barrack Street Practice) has been caring for our local community since 1927.

The Practice was established in 1927 by Dr Christine Walch and in 1955 the late Dr Valerie Davenport took over the Practice and it became the forerunner of what it is today. While much has changed over the years, we continue to provide you with the best in general practice and medical care.

Our doctors, nurses and administrative staff are committed to providing you with comprehensive care in the friendly, caring and co-operative environment for which we have become known.

We welcome all members of the community and are non-judgmental, welcoming, honest and fair in our dealings with all of our patients.
