Practice Background

The Family Doctor Cairns opened in November 2007 when Dr Harkins took over the patients of long established retiring GP Dr John Anderson. Dr Eccles joined in 2010. A major upgrade was made to the facilities, by moving premises to 39 Pease St, Manoora in September 2011. The ground floor of the 2 storey building was completely refitted for use as a medical centre. The new building provides more spacious facilities allowing room for a practice nurse. It provides a very large treatment room in which 2 height adjustable beds were installed. The practice also acquired its own car park.
