At Cavenagh Medical we pride ourselves on carefully selecting a team who are at the forefront of general practitioner medicine to meet your health needs.

We are an accredited teaching practice with GP registrars. These doctors are fully qualified and are undergoing their advanced specialist GP training. Patients are encouraged to speak to the practice manager if they have any queries. Complementary to our doctors, we employ three registered nurses who assist the doctors with procedures and perform ECGs, dressings, health assessments, and immunisations. We believe in a multi-disciplinary approach and have a psychologist onsite on Thursday and an exercise physiologist on Tuesday evening and Saturday mornings.
