Walkerston GP Superclinic is finally open and ready to serve our community bigger and better than before!
Our Doctors and Staff have been servicing the Walkerston Community for over 14 years and the new premises provide a big beautiful modern facility that lifts the bar on health for Walkerston and its residents. The inspiration behind Walkerston GP Superclinic was the need to expand healthcare availability to Walkerston and the Pioneer Valley, making great healthcare accessible in every region in the Pioneer Valley.
We pride ourselves on excellence in care and attention to each and every one of our valued patients. We welcome new patients and offer a complete range of services ranging from immunisations, regular health checks for the whole family, through to coal board medicals. Our aim is to ensure our patients feel safe and secure at all times and encourage you to ask any questions you feel relevant during your appointment.
Our standard consultation time is 10 minutes, but if you feel you may need longer than this; please inform our reception team when making your appointment.
We look forward to building a long and healthy relationship with you, and remember… no question is ever a silly question!
