Our medical centre is owned and operated by Otway Health, providing several dedicated, highly skilled practitioners who are able to perform a range of health services to members of the local community and visitors to the Apollo Bay region.

Our medical centre services include:

Your health is important, and we encourage you to see your local GPs for regular health check-ups and vaccinations, help with advanced care planning, or if you’re experiencing illness or injury.

Home Visits

For patients unable to attend the practice, home visits are available locally for regular patients of this practice at the doctors discretion. Please discuss your requirements with our receptionist.
