Welcome to Westcare

Westcare Medical Centre has been providing high quality medical care to the people of Melton since 1989.

The business of Westcare is owned and managed by our principal doctors, which allows us to maintain our independence from corporate or industry influence.

We are passionate about training the next generation of Melton GPs, and have won awards for our teaching and for the quality of our service.
