Welcome to Gilbert Collins

Gilbert Collins Medical Practice is owned & managed by GP’s. Our focus is on delivering a high quality, comprehensive healthcare service for our local community.

We believe that the best medical care comes from having a GP who knows your needs well, has accurate and complete medical records and can provide you with the continuity of care you deserve.

Our doctors are experienced in all aspects of general practice, with a number of special interests and a commitment to best practice, evidence-based medicine and to promoting a healthy lifestyle and disease prevention.


Dear Valued Patients,
It is with regret that we have to inform you of a change to our billing policy. This change is the result of a long period of consideration, and hesitation.
As a practice, we strongly believe that everyone deserves to have access to high-quality healthcare regardless of their financial situation. We have held off from making this change for some time, because we believe it is crucial to keep people engaged with their healthcare.
From 1 September 2022 we will no longer be bulk-billing pension card holders. DVA Gold card holders and children under 5 will continue to be bulk-billed.
This change will allow us to continue to bulk bill for the many other services we currently provide, such as wound care, government vaccine administration, health care assessments etc., as is our current practice.
We are committed to maintaining and improving the quality of healthcare we provide, and have had to take this step, in order to protect the sustainability of our practice.
We cannot thank you enough for your ongoing support of our practice – in the past and into the future – as we make this transition.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you are in need of assistance.
