The Neighbourhood Health Clinic

Based at the New Farm Neighbourhood Centre

Our visiting practitioners are committed to treating the whole person and are dedicated to finding new approaches to meeting the complex health needs of our community.

People using the the Neighbourhood Health Clinic can visit our GP for medical checks and advice.

The aim of Clinic is to empower members of our community to take ownership of their health and well-being.


The Clinic is open to all community members.

We do not take bookings for our Clinic.

Arrive by 9am, Tuesday and Thursday to ensure a booking with Dr Nancy.

Our Visiting Practitioners

Dr Nancy has over 30 years of experience as a general practitioner, has a strong background in community health, and supports individuals with complex health and social needs. Nancy has a professional interest in substance use disorder and mental health issues, with an approach to practice that is trauma-informed, and sensitive to the needs of her community. GP consultations are bulk billed, and Nancy can refer to other specialist services where necessary.

Dr Nancy is at New Farm Neighbourhood Centre Tuesdays and Thursdays between 9 am and 1 pm, no appointment necessary 

No other service in Brisbane is currently providing funding for these licences and it has been an amazing opportunity for out clients to be able to be supported in this way

Mercy Community Services

The food was amazing for me and my two girls. It was so good not to be alone on Christmas day.


Thank you. You have made me feel human. Sometimes you don’t feel human when you go to services. This is lovely.


I just wanted to let you know of this wonderful display of collaboration (it doesn’t go unnoticed!) and how important it is to smaller community groups, volunteers and local people working hard in community.


Thank you for creating awareness and public attention to the issue of domestic and family violence and providing community members with vital information to connect people to services and support.
