For those living with coeliac disease, being gluten-free is more than just a nod to the latest health food fad.

We can’t stop the clock and avoid getting older, but we can help to ensure our bodies are in the best condition possible. Leading a healthy and active lifestyle as we age can help strengthen muscles and bones, as well as reduce symptoms from arthritis, osteoporosis, diabetes and even depression.
The Easter long weekend is fast approaching and Newtown Medical Centre's business hours will differ during the Easter period. We will be closed on both of the Good Friday and Easter Monday public holidays but will open on Saturday 15th April for our standard business hours of 9am to 11am. As per normal, we will be closed on Sunday 16th April.
For non-emergency medical assistance while we are closed, get in touch with the National Home Doctor Service on 13SICK. This service is bulk billed. If you require emergency medical assistance, please dial 000.
Newtown Medical Centre wishes all of our patients and staff a safe and relaxing Easter break.
