The Practice

Hunters Hill Medical Practice has provided facilities for GPs to treat patients at various sites in Hunters Hill continuously since 1860. Doctors working from HHMP take great pride in being able to carry on this legacy of medical care in Hunters Hill and the surrounding suburbs, particularly as this area retains its wonderful community spirit.

HHMP provides the facilities to allow doctors to focus on a high standard of care, preventative medicine and a holistic approach to treatment. This is complemented by having a variety of other co-located services including specialists and allied health providers; whom all work together with your general practitioner to provide you convenience and connected care.

Physical and mental health conditions are the reality of daily life. Healthcare services can sometimes be fragmented, of variable quality or hard to navigate. HHMP’s facilities allow for multiple health disciplines to be co-located and thus improve community access to high quality care and a simpler health care journey.

Excellent healthcare for the community is best achieved through a multi-disciplinary team having general Practice, specialists and allied health all under the one roof. Excellent facilities allow these independent providers to focus on high quality care, integrate services, prioritise continuity and engage in lifelong education.

History

The history of general practice in Hunters Hill is as old as the suburb itself. The original doctor in the suburb, a man named Dr Jenner Plomley, was a signatory on the petition to the Colonial government requesting permission for Hunters Hill to become a municipality in 1860.

The history of medicine in Hunters Hill, however, dates back much earlier than the official formation of the municipality in 1861. Henley was formerly known as Blandville after, Dr William Bland who settled locally in 1837.

A full history of Medicine and General Practice in Hunters Hill can be obtained from this fascinating research paper by Dominic Bowes in 2012.
