Drs Ceri (a Welsh Gaelic name pronounced "Kerry"), Andrew and Richard Goodwin are brothers who have owned and operated the medical centre since the mid 1990s. The centre now has 17 vocationally registered doctors working over two sites.
The surgery has its roots in a local practice that has cared for people in the Malvern/Unley and surrounding areas for over 80 years.
In the year 2000, the practice moved from a bungalow on nearby Opey Avenue to its current, much larger, premises on Unley Road. In the mid 2000s, the practice further expanded into an adjacent shop adding another three rooms to the centre.
Today, the main building offers eight generous sized consulting rooms (including a dedicated treatment room), a comfortable waiting room and a modern reception area and ample on-site, as well as adjacent off-site car parking.
In 2012, a second building, The Cottage (75 Fairford St, Unley), was added to the practice behind the main centre. With the partial assistance of a Federal Government grant, this character cottage was fully renovated and converted into a dedicated Medical and Allied Health facility.
In 2020 a third building, which we have dubbed, The Bungalow (73 Fairford St, Unley) was acquired. The Bungalow is next door to the Cottage. The two front rooms were renovated and the building has been used extensively as our vaccination centre during the COVID pandemic and for Flu Clinics.
More recently we have added dedicated Care Planning and Health Assessment clinics to the activities conducted in this building.
80 Belair Rd
In 2020 we expanded with the opening of the Hawthorn Branch surgery at 80 Belair Road.
In addition to the doctors who consult at Hawthorn we also host a Podiatrist, Physiotherapist and Paediatric Psychologist.
Please note that all Saturday consultations are at our Hawthorn Branch. Unley Branch is not open on Saturdays.
We look forward to welcoming our patients to both branches.
There is ample parking for patients at 199 Unley Rd immediately adjacent to the main building, the Cottage and nearby.
