I would disagree with the above. The medical centres are okay but whilst we were living there I never found a doctor that I would be tempted to see more than once. All the good ones' books were shut and were impossible to see. I felt uneasy knowing that if one of us needed emergency/life saving treatment, Taree is 40 minutes away. Cape Hawke Hospital is pretty much a rehab hospital and does not have any sort of emergency department.
The medical facilities in the area are great. There are numerous GP's and chemists in town as well as Cape Hawke Private Hospital which is more than enough to take care of anything small and immediate. In terms of more in depth medical assistance, Taree hospital is an easy half hour drive maybe forty minutes if you're unlucky and John Hunter in Newcastle is great for anything planned.
