About Us

Barrier Reef Medical Centre – Local Cairns Doctors

Barrier Reef Medical Centre was established in 1978 and continues today with the same philosophy of individual patient centred care while keeping pace with progress in both modern clinical developments in a contemporary accredited care environment.

Our doctors have a strong commitment to their own individual medical education, all being certified with the Royal College of General Practice for Quality Improvement and Continuing Professional Development (QI & CPD).  The medical centre is also accredited as a training practice, involved in the training of GP Registrars and medical students.

In June 2014, the medical centre transferred to their new state of the art premises at 356 McLeod Street, Cairns North.  The new premises allow our clinical and non clinical staff to care for all patients in a relaxed, modern and friendly environment, ensuring the foundation philosophy is continued.

Our clinical staff consists of 8 Doctors and 6 Registered Nurses.  Both Doctors and Nurses have a diverse range of interests being able to support each other as they provide care from the “cradle to the grave”.

Apart from the family medicine our Doctor’s interests include antenatal share care, children’s health, sports and physical medicine, travel medicine and immunisations, sexual health, skin care including digital dermatoscopy and on-site excisions, commercial and workplace medicine including DAME (Designated Aviation Medical Examiner), employment medicals, palliative care, nursing home and elderly home visits as well as “end of life” care.

We have specially designed an appointment for a full medical called Well Woman check and a ManOverhaul appointment.  Please see our Services page for further information.
