Home > About us

Barrack Street Practice has been caring for our local community since 1927.
The Practice was established in 1927 by Dr Christine Walch and in 1955 the late Dr Valerie Davenport took over the Practice and it became the forerunner of what it is today.

The Practice was originally situated at 5 Barrack Street, in the old stone cottages built by convicts in 1848. These now form the entrance to the ‘Barrack Court’ building which was opened in 1986.

Dr Davenport’s name was retained until 2002 in recognition of the service she provided to the community. In 2002, the Practice became known as Barrack Street Practice Pty Ltd.

While much has changed over the years, we continue to provide you with the best in general practice and medical care.

Our doctors, nurses and administrative staff are committed to providing you with comprehensive care in the friendly, caring and co-operative environment for which we have become known.

We welcome all members of the community and are nonjudgmental, welcoming, honest and fair in our dealings with all of our patients.
