We were very sad to say goodbye to Dr Alex Maslen last week. Alex has completed her locum tenure at Yack Health and now returns to her post at Defence Health. She has been a wonderful asset to the Medical Centre Team and will be sadly missed.


The Medical Centre is still open and taking both face-to-face and telephone appointments. We do thank all our patients for their cooperation with our COVID safety which includes:

  • Not attending the Centre if you have travelled to Melbourne or a known COVID hot spot in the last 2 weeks.
  • Not attending the Centre if you are displaying any COVID symptoms at all.
  • Answering a few safety questions and having your temperature tested when you attend for your appointment.
  • Wearing a facial mask for the duration of your visit to our Centre.

With your help we can keep our staff and our community healthy and COVID free.
