floor area of 840m2.
The new premises will also have pathology

Border Pathology will be moving to the new
premises and a skin clinic will be set up in
the existing building.
"The skin clinic will incorporate the most up

out minor surgeries," Dr Varghese said.

vision for a locally operated medical facility
with the primary focus on family based
medical care and holistic medicine," said Dr

with training the next generation of health
professionals and has GP registrars, medical,
