History of the Practice

The practice was formed by Dr. Bob Nichols in 1980 and operated as a two doctor practice for close to 30 years. Bob prided the practice on it’s family reach offering highly personalised care to a diversified and loyal patient group who followed him from Dee Why.
Upon Bob’s retirement in 2011 Dr Julian Northover continued the practice in accordance with his values. He was joined by Dr Olivia Andrews in 2015, Dr Stephanie Gill in 2017 and Dr Erin Noonan and Dr Edwina Pritchard in 2019.
The surgery was renovated in 2019 by incorporating additional space in the building.
Our surgery provides a private and comfortable environment for you to see your doctor or our other practitioners, knowing that the surgery will support your care with the very best in communication and processes to ensure you receive the best care possible.
