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.
NSW Health has reinstated a “Green Alert” for health providers from 24/2/2021. This means that masks are no longer required when attending 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 100doses/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.
The vaccine has had a lot of publicity recently due to the incidence of rare side effects. In people over 50, the risk of severe side effects is around 1 per million and even lower in the over 70s. This is significantly less risk than most other medications that we would prescribe and vastly less risk than catching Covid. Please be reassured that vaccination is safe for almost everyone and is strongly recommended for people over 50.
