About Us

Nambour Clinic was established in 1959 when the late Dr James Trotter relocated his surgery from Netherton Street to the current premises in Howard Street, Nambour. Dr Trotter and Dr Allan Raine formed a partnership in 1959 and Dr Raine continued in the practice until his retirement in 2006. Dr Miles Savill also joined the partnership in 1959 and he retired in 2007.

Nambour Clinic originally addressed the health needs of families in the local community. As a small country practice, the Clinic offered stability and continuity of care to the people of Nambour and surrounding districts. When the partners of Nambour Clinic realised the health needs of the wider community were not being met they opened a clinic in Woombye in 1978. Initially the practice opened on a part-time basis, however as the population of Woombye grew and the demands increased a full-time service was implemented. With the continual growth in the population in the Hinterland further opportunity was taken to expand with the opening of a clinic at Palmwoods in September 2007.

The nature of medicine has changed over the last forty years. In the early years of the Clinic’s history the doctors themselves performed major surgical procedures at the local hospital. Caring for midwifery patients was also part of the practice, and the doctors were on call on a roster system at night and on weekends. With the availability of specialist medical services in the area surgical and midwifery patients are in 2007 referred to specialists. Patients still have access to an after hours and weekend service offered by the clinic and all the doctors have admitting rights to Selangor Private Hospital.

The doctors and staff of Nambour, Woombye and Palmwoods Clinics strive to provide an excellent service to the people in the local area. This is achieved in a congenial atmosphere where care and concern for people’s health needs are of paramount importance.
