The Blackburn Clinic is a Family Medical Practice that was established by Professor Neil Carson in 1952 and was completely rebuilt in 1992.  We offer a comprehensive range of family medicine services and we are also a Licensed Travel Vaccination Centre.  Our clinic is an association of independent General Practitioners who consult from two suites within the same building at 195 Whitehorse Road.  Patients are welcome to see our GPs at either or both of:

Suite 5—Blackburn Clinic              and

Suite 2– Blackburn Specialist Centre.

Our services, fees, policies and procedures apply to both suites. Both sites have secure access to our patient clinical data and share the same system for patient appointments.

The following GPs  consult at Blackburn Specialist Centre:
