Northcare Accident and Medical

ABOUT US

We aim to provide you with the best care in a bright, modern environment.


As an accident and medical clinic, we have cared for the people living and working in our area for many years. We were previously known as Albany Basin Accident and Medical and our former building was on the corner of Upper Harbour Hwy and Unsworth Dr. The new location is a lot easier for most people now with motorway access north, south and west, ample parking and more onsite services. We have a café adjoining the waiting room, 7 day pharmacy, full radiology services, a plaster room, urgent dentists, lab collection and physio with onsite orthopaedic clinics, skin clinics, as well as ear, nose and throat specialists and audiology.

Our aim is to provide you with the best care in a bright, modern environment. We try to do this as quickly, efficiently and respectfully as we can. This means we use innovations such as online registrations and bookings, e-prescriptions (optional) and skilled triage.
