A Little About Blockhouse Bay Medical Centre

Blockhouse Bay Medical Centre was established in the 1950s and grew from its original position in 3A Heaphy St to, at its peak in the late 80s, to occupy both Heaphy St and Blockhouse Bay Rd, with satellite cliniics at Lynfield and Rosebank Rd. With retirements things have been now rationalised back from what was then an A+E style centre to a true General Practice occupying the 503 Blockhouse Bay address with the other clinics having been sold off and the number of doctors now resting at 3 full time equivalents with 3 full time nurses.
The Drs are Brian Thomson, Shanthi Selvakumar, and Phil Ruge.
The nurses are Ranjita Pratap, Nileshnee Nand and Stacey Richards.
