Nestled in the heart of Cheltenham is a family medical clinic with a difference – Bayside Family Medical. Our team has been providing quality medical services to Cheltenham and surrounds since 1983. We expanded our clinic in 2015 and moved to the beach side of the Nepean Highway.

At Bayside Family Medical, we offer specialised skin cancer check-ups and travel medicine advice, in addition to comprehensive GP services. We also have Melbourne Pathology conveniently located on site. Whether you’re a young family looking for a reputable Cheltenham GP, or a retiree who wants the satisfaction of knowing they are getting the best medical care in Cheltenham, look no further!

Our Cheltenham Medical Clinic

Our warm, welcoming medical centre is designed with our patients’ comfort and convenience in mind. The modern reception area features a modern layout, with a cosy mothers nook where you can breastfeed your baby or read to your child. At Bayside Family Medical, we like to treat our patients like family and endeavour to welcome you with the highest level of customer service. 

Our clinic features eight large consulting rooms and a spacious treatment and procedure room where our doctors perform minor surgical procedures. Our main entrance is on Nepean Highway while the Melbourne Pathology entrance is off Charman Road. We are conveniently close to public transport (Cheltenham Station and bus stops), plus there is plenty of parking available. Conveniently there are four pharmacies located within one kilometre of our Cheltenham medical clinic.

A family doctor you can trust

Bayside Family Medical is an APGAL-accredited General Practice, which means we provide the highest standard of medical care and service. Every three years, our Cheltenham medical clinic is independently assessed against the governing industry standards set by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP). If you think we could improve our service, please leave a message in our reception suggestion box.

A doctor training centre

We pride ourselves on being a training practice for the General Practitioners of the future, which is why we offer a GP Registrar placement program. We regularly have experienced, qualified doctors gaining further exposure and training in the specialty of General Practice. This program is run in collaboration with the RACGP and EVGPT the Registrar Training Program. We also have Medical Students who visit as at our practice from the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences at Monash University.

Our commitment is to ensure: Patients receive timely care and advice appropriate to their individual needs, to make informed decisions about their healthcare. Also that patient medical records and information remain confidential, and we focus on disease prevention as much as treatment.
