Helping practices to be their best.

Dear Valued Patients,

As you may be aware, Australia continues to experience a critical shortage of GPs, with the impact of this felt not just in Tasmania but across the country. This has made it extremely difficult to attract and retain doctors at East Devonport Medical Centre.

To ensure we can continue to serve our community, we have made the decision to merge East Devonport Medical Centre with SmartClinics Devonport. This will ensure continuity of care for current patients with effective resourcing, while enabling for future growth.

The final day of appointments at East Devonport Medical Centre was 2nd February, 2024. In the coming months, we will rebrand the SmartClinics practice to become:

Devonport Family Medical Centre.

East Devonport Medical Centre has been caring for the local community for nearly 50 years. The health and well-being of patients are – and always have been the doctors’ greatest priorities, and we thank you for your support over the years.

Best wishes,

The East Devonport Medical Centre Team
