A new medical centre in Woy Woy’s Deepwater Plaza Shopping Centre opened on March 1.

Umina Surgery has been renamed as the Woy Woy Family Practice and is open to both new and existing patients.

The new practice features 13 general practice rooms, a state-of-the-art treatment and procedure room and additional rooms for services.

Practice manager, Barbara White, said staff were pleased to relocate the facility just 10 minutes from its current Umina home.

“Over the years, the needs of our patients and the practice have changed, and our current site no longer meets the needs of a growing, modern practice,” White said.

“We will continue to offer the same trusted, quality healthcare delivered by our current team of doctors and staff.

“We look forward to caring for our current patients at our new premises, while the relocation presents an opportunity to also welcome new patients who live or holiday in the region.”

The practice’s current services, which include general health assessments, paediatrics, travel medicine, skin cancer checks and chronic disease management, will continue to be offered.

A new ear wax removal and professional ear cleaning service will also be available.

All current doctors and staff will relocate to the new surgery, with Dr Mary Tran also joining the new venture.

The practice will remain part of the network of Fullterton Health Medical Centres.
