Primary Healthcare Service
GP practice - enrolled patients only
This practice provides COVID-19 testing to enrolled patients. Please call the practice for more information.
Bethlehem Family Doctor (BFD) was established in 1999 by Dr Murray Hay, and his wife Jane whose vision was to see a medical centre adjacent to the Bethlehem College campus. From small beginnings the practice has grown, both in staff numbers and in the breadth of experience across the practice team. Even with the continued level of growth, there remains a commitment to providing healthcare for the wider Bethlehem community, while maintaining a ‘Family’ practice.
Our team is made up of GPs (see details below under “General Practitioners”) and:
Practice Manager: Fiona
Nursing Staff: Libby, Alana, Vicki, Jo and Sheryl (HCA)
Receptionist: Jocelyn and Rachel
