    Mission Statement

    Our mission is to provide the highest standard of patient care whilst incorporating a holistic approach toward diagnosis and management of illness.

    We are committed to promoting health, wellbeing and disease prevention to all patients. We do not discriminate in the provision of excellent care and aim to treat all patients with dignity and respect

    Practice Background

    The Practice started operating from the front 1/3 of the current premises in June 2006.
    We very quickly outgrew the facilities and resources and after recruiting Dr Kotie we expanded to the current facilities in October 2007
    Since 2012 we have been active involved in teaching ANU Medical Students
    We started training GP Registrars in 2015

    Our intentions was to be a Family orientated GP clinic and Dr Thinus would be focused on doing his skin cancer related work.
    In the twelve years that followed we found that Dr Thinus and Riana were increasingly diverting more and more of their Clinical hours into administrative tasks required to run the business while working unsustainable hours.

    This was not good for us or our patients and we therefore made the decision to close our Clinic down on 31 October 2018 and start working as contractors
    at a new Ochre Medical centre at Kippax
    (in the old Magpies Club building).
    Due to some unexpected construction delays the opening day of the new Kippax Clinic has been pushed back to the end of 2018.
    The Tillyard Drive Medical Practice will still be closing on 31 October 2018.

    From 5 November 2018 Our Doctors will provide sessions for our existing GP patients at the Ochre Casey clinic in the interim - bookings can be made on 6163 4200 from the 5th of November 2018.

    Closing down our Clinic and going to work at a Corporate Clinic was no easy decision.
    The larger Corporate Clinics often do not offer patients the type of care that our Doctors are used to deliver at our Clinic.

    Ochre however offers a different model - our patients will still book to see their favorite Doctor, get their recalls & reminders and get all other services that they currently get.

    The major difference will be that Dr Thinus & Dr Riana will have their time freed up to spend more time on medicine.
    Our other regular Doctors will also make the move to the new Clinic and our Staff will join us at Ochre.

    The new Clinic will end up with more Doctors, Nursing staff, Allied health, etc. and at this stage it is all looking very exciting.

    Contact numbers for the new clinic will be the same and the Kippax Clinic will be situated at 76 Hardwick Crescent, Holt.
    You don't need to do anything If you are happy to tag along with us to the new Clinic - we will transfer all the information across when the transition happens
    Please call us if you do wish to transfer your files elsewhere and we will facilitate the process although it would be sad for us to see you go
    Until 31 October the staff at our clinic will be able to facilitate such requests but after that data all requests should be directed to the Ochre Kippax Practice Manager

    We are unable to accept any new GP patients until the clinic has closed down


        Monday to Friday: 08h00AM until   05h30PM
