Garema Place Surgery is a teaching practice and is involved in training Doctors who have chosen a career in General Practice. These Doctors are referred to as General Practice Registrars and are working towards their specialisation in General Practice. They are fully qualified and have hospital experience. They are supervised by the senior Doctors in the practice. The training program allows them to work in one practice from 6 to 12 months. Garema Place Surgery is committed to continuing care and we will continue your care once the registrar is no longer part of our team.

Registered Nurses:  Naida and Debra 

Our Nurses form a very important part of the practice team and will often see you prior to your appointment with the Doctor to update your details and to perform some basic observations such as Height, Weight and Blood Pressure. They are experienced in Chronic Disease Management; Immunisation; Wound Management; Point of Care testing; Spirometry and Audiometry.
