Dubbo Public Eye Clinic has moved

Due to a growing number of patients and shortage of space, the Dubbo Public Eye Clinic has moved from the Dubbo Regional Aboriginal Health Service (DRAHS) to premises provided by the Western NSW Local Health District at the Specialist Medical Centre.

The new location at Manera Plaza (77 Myall Street) will continue to provide great access for patients with plenty of parking and public bus stops close by.

The Dubbo Public Eye Clinic has been providing ophthalmology services to the people of Dubbo and surrounding areas for many years. It is funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health through the Rural Health Outreach Program (RHOF). RHOF is administered in NSW by the NSW Rural Doctors Network and the clinic is managed locally by Marathon Health.

Although the address has changed, the clinic timetable and management will remain unchanged with 2017 clinic dates proceeding as originally planned. For clients familiar with the process, please continue to call Marathon Health on (02) 6826 5200. Melissa Mayall is available to take your enquires from Tuesday to Friday from 9am to 3pm. Messages can be left for the Marathon Health Public Eye Team on that number at other times. All new patients will require a GP referral.

Western NSW Local Health District, Marathon Health and the NSW Rural Doctors Network would like to acknowledge the dedicated team of ophthalmologists, orthoptists and nurses that provide clinics as well as the health services across the region who support their clients to attend this important service.

For more information about the RHOF program please contact the Outreach Program team at the NSW Rural Doctors Network on (02) 8337 8100.
