Philosophy Our aim is to give our patients the highest possible quality of care, by ensuring excellence in all aspects of our practice. We endeavour to provide patients with the best and most current treatments, methods, materials and equipment within our resource capabilities to ensure that the patients receive the high quality of service they have come to expect. We believe that the patient comes first. Teamwork is highly valued and encouraged within the practice to promote a harmonious and productive environment. We hold great importance in ethical and responsible behaviour as essential to maintaining the trust and loyalty of our patients and staff.
Training style Fisher Family Practice is committed to teaching the future generation of general practitioners. This is achieved through extensive involvement of our entire medical team to provide quality, hands-on learning opportunities for both registrars and medical students.

We have a team of highly experienced supervisors who meet regularly to discuss progress and the best practice teaching requirements
