About the Practice                         

Duchess Medical Practice is a rural group practice in the coastal town of Busselton.  The practice is housed in a purpose built facility, with a pathology collection centre next door.  The local population is 37,000, with the population considerably increased by tourists during the holiday season, consequently increasing the practice workload.

Twelve doctors work at the practice.  In addition to comprehensive family medicine, the special interests of the practitioners include:

  • obstetrics
  • anaesthetics
  • acupuncture
  • musculo-skeletal medicine
  • palliative care
  • nutritional medicine and
  • psychological medicine. 
Nine assistant doctors are also currenlty employed by the practice.  Support staff is comprised of one of five part time nurses.


All patient medical records are kept on the practice’s fully computerised system, with all appointments and billing also being computerised.

Philosophy/Ethos

To provide quality care to our community.
