We are  located at 277 Rusden St on the corner of Rusden St and Niagara St opposite Drummond School.

At West Armidale Medical Centre we offer a comprehensive range of general medical services, including children’s health, women’s health, general check-ups, vaccinations, Pre-employment medicals and minor surgical procedures.

To make an appointment, please contact us  and speak to one of our friendly reception staff. We’ll be happy to help you.

We are offering consultations by either telephone or video consultation. If you do not need to have a physical examination and have been seen in person in the last 12 months then you can have a video or telephone appointment. Please let the receptionist know at the time of booking. If you have a smart phone then we can use video most of the time.

Due to the current corona virus situation, masks are compulsory for all adults to wear at our surgery.

Corona Virus Vaccination

WAMC has been approved to provide COVID vaccinations. This is a voluntary scheme provided free of charge.

We  have been allocated 200doses/week and have plenty of vaccine at present. If you would like to be vaccinated, please call our receptionists and they can arrange an appointment.

We have been given approval to vaccinate anyone over the age of 50 from 4th May 21. However at present we only have Astra Zenica vaccine and this is now only recommended as a first dose for those aged over 60. We strongly encourage anyone of any age who has had their first dose of Astra Zenica vaccine to have the second dose at the appropriate 12 week interval. The risk from a second dose of any serious side effects is very very low.

Armidale Hospital has a COVID community clinic at ARRH for anyone over age 40 or anyone in the 1b group under 60. The days/times are as follows:

Monday to Thursday 9-3 Pfizer

Friday 9-3 AstraZeneca

Bookings are made via the link below or scanning the QR located at the front entrance of the hospital. Currently they are not taking walk ins and only accepting people by “appointment only”. Bookings at this stage are for anyone aged 40 years and over, as well as other priority groups can be vaccinated. Please use the “check my eligibility” on the below link.
