THE after hours GP clinic at Midland Hospital has closed.

The Midland GP Superclinic across the road at the Midland Railway Workshops will extend its opening hours following the closure.

Managing director Dr Vasantha Preetham said stage one of the clinic’s extended hours was now complete with doctors available until 8pm on Mondays to Thursdays and 8.30am to 2.30pm on Saturday.

“Stage two is underway, we are currently actively looking for doctors to further extend our hours on Saturday to 5pm and 10am to 2pm on Sunday in the near future,” she said.

“Our onsite services include a large doctor surgery staffed by female and male GPs, which offers acute episodic care including minor surgery and other onsite services include a pharmacy.”

An East Metropolitan Health Service spokeswoman said there are four large GP clinics offering extended business hours in close proximity to Midland Hospital that offer bulk billing facilities for eligible individuals, including children and concession cardholders.
