About Us

The Nelson Bay Medical Centre was the first practice on the Tomaree Peninsula.  It was started some years after World War II when Nelson Bay and Shoal Bay were host to allied naval forces. Over the years, as the area has grown, practices were opened at Salamander Bay and Soldiers Point.

Recently we have consolidated and no longer operate from 39 Stockton Street, Nelson Bay. We now provide services five days a week at Salamander Medical Centre and Soldiers Point Medical Centre.

We are an accredited practice and are dedicated to the training and support of medical students and registrars.
