The clinic, located on Waratah Way, was renovated in 2013.

Practice manager Rechelle Smullen said this renovation was completed with the assistance of federal government funding to enable the clinic "to provide better services for our patients with chronic diseases".

But this year has also seen change at the clinic.

Mrs Smullen said there was a full renovation of the two units on site completed in June 2017, allowing for the opportunity to provide an additional range of complementary services to the clinic's patients.
