Mystery as medical centre at Goodna closes

MYSTERY surrounds the closure of a medical centre at Goodna which served hundreds of patients.
 
The Cedars Medical Centre included a doctor's surgery and Goodna X-Ray facility.
 
The bulk-billing practice on the corner of Queen and Church streets closed last week.
 
A hand-written note taped to the centre's front door reads "Due to unavoidable circumstances we are closed", while a recorded phone message says the practice is "temporarily closed".
 
Goodna X-Ray is permanently closed and its phones have been diverted to a practice in Richlands.
 
State Member for Bundamba Jo-Ann Miller, who has an office in Queen Street, said the centre filled an important need in the community.
 
"No one has come in to tell us about it or ask us about it," Ms Miller said.
 
"We have other doctors in the medical centre at St Ives Shopping Centre and it's a very, very busy practice.
 
"In our area people actively seek out bulk-billing doctors."
 
Mrs Miller said losing the X-ray facility was a huge blow.
 
Goodna-based Councillor Paul Tully said he had "no idea" why the centre had closed down.
