About Our Clinic

Practice history

In 1955 Bedford Medical Clinic was established by founding doctors Upsdell and Hughes.  

Originally it was a rural practice operating at Blackwood, Ashford and Glenelg.  Bedford has subsequently become a suburban practice.

Past and present long-standing doctors of the clinic are Dr Fernando, Dr Wedd, Dr Leeder, Dr McMillan, Dr Kubicek, Dr Ludero, Dr Brailey, Dr Wauchope, Dr Grigg, Dr Harrison, Dr Partridge, Dr Worley, Dr Ebert, Dr Jamieson and Dr Downey.

Drs Steward and Harrison's practice merged with Bedford in 1998.

In June 2008 Bedford Medical Clinic moved to Bellevue Heights before moving back to its current building in the former Mitsubishi site at 1284 South Road, Clovelly Park in October 2009.

Special interests of the practice have included computerised mole checks, advanced skin cancer treatments, minor surgery, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, geriatrics and Travel Medicine.
