A medical centre for the whole community.

The new Medidock Health Centre on City Rd comes as a welcome addition to Southbank’s ever-growing community.

Having only recently opened its doors in September, clinic director Dr Sid Vohra said he and his team were determined to provide the local community with more than just a health service.  

“We want to focus on all aspects of health because we are passionate about the health and wellbeing of Southbank people, so that’s everything from medical management through to preventative health checks,” he said.

“We want to be not just a medical centre sitting in Southbank but doing multiple things and getting involved in every aspect of the community.”

Having undertaken a Masters of Business Administration in France and worked as a health adviser for one of the world’s leading consulting firms, Dr Vohra has extensive experience in both business and as a medical practitioner.

Alongside his partner Shipra and an experienced team, he said he aimed to bring his experience and passion for healthcare to the Southbank community.

“I basically wanted to use what I’ve done to set up a service here in Southbank – an area which is under-serviced for medical facilities and has a growing population,” he said.

“There is a growing need and people currently have to go out of the area. Seeing the area develop over a long period of time, I thought this is a great time to come in and make a proper medical centre in Southbank.”

Located in the heart of Southbank, directly opposite the Boyd Community Hub on City Rd, Medidock currently operates five days a week and will soon open during evenings and weekends.

Dr Vohra said considerable efforts had been made to provide state-of-the-art facilities, with the centre offering all general health practice services as well as on-site pathology, podiatry, exercise physiology and psychology.

As well as providing corporate health consultations and health checks for businesses, Dr Vohra said the practice offered a flexible billing model with the intent of making health care accessible for the whole community.

“We’ll be bulk-billing children and anybody with a pension or concession card for seniors and students,” he said. “I think this is going to really help us have a billing model, which fits with the socio-economic group that we’re talking about.”

“We want healthcare to be accessible to everybody. We want to provide quality care – not fast consultations.”

Medidock Health Centre is located at 216 City Rd in Southbank.
