About The Herdsman Medical Centre

Herdsman Medical Centre has been looking after people in the Churchlands, Floreat, Wembley and nearby areas for approximately 40 years. As with any business that is well liked, Herdsman Medical Centre has stood the test of time and has evolved over time to suit the needs of the community. Dr Tallentire and Dr Melling retired around 2008 and through a fortunate series of events Dr Chisholm started work at Herdsman Medical followed soon after by Dr Veling, Dr Silove and others from the closing Post Office Medical Centre in Wembley. Dr Gerrard followed, Subsequently the practice grew with the recruitment of other high quality practitioners to join the medical team at Herdsman Medical.

The patronage of returning and new patients tells us that we are servicing the community at the high standard it expects and as it should.

We hope by providing the same high quality of care available at Herdsman Medical Centre that our service to the community will expand and will become the preferred practice for medical care in the local community.
