Welcome to CCFP…
Colleges Crossing Family Practice is owned and operated by Dr Cath Hester and Dr Tony Bayliss. We are joined by three excellent primary care specialists, Dr Emma Philip, Dr Lauren Barclay, and Dr Amin Gayed, to help provide quality medical care for our community.
Our clinic opened in 2015, and has grown to provide care to around 10,000 patients from the local area in this short time.
We aim to provide ‘whole family’ care using evidence based medicine. All of our doctors have Australian specialist qualifications in family medicine (through the RACGP) and our practice is fully accredited with AGPAL.
Our clinic is friendly and comfortable, run by very highly trained, motivated and friendly staff. You may see us do things slightly differently here – we are continually working on improving our knowledge and processes to provide better care for our patients and also a better work environment for our staff.
Last but not least, our photos of birds, squirrels, auroras and bears are second to none!
It might be useful to know we save around 32 short appointment slots for urgent ‘on the day’ visits every day – so if you need to see a doctor the same day we are usually able to find you a spot – particularly handy for young families. These spots open after midnight each evening on the online booking app. If no free spots are visible on the online booking service please call to check with our reception staff, in particular, if your child is unwell we will make every effort to see them the same day.
Online bookings are a convenient way to book anytime.
Otherwise please phone our friendly receptionists on 3201 2010 during business hours.
We are located on Yuggera Country at 1 Langi Court, Karana Downs, Q4306.
