Delroy Park Medical Centre has been able to expand its services after welcoming a new doctor to the practise.
Dr Lynette Reid will work three days a week there, joining owner Dr Bessie Yamba with their goal of providing greater care for Dubbo.
Dr Reid has already brought a number of patients to the practice but is hoping to welcome even more.
“I’m very happy to have Dr Reid come on board and I know she is looking forward to helping people,” Dr Yamba said.
Dr Yamba said she had been looking to expand for a while but because Dubbo isn’t classified as an area with a doctor shortage, it had been difficult to new graduated doctors or doctors arriving from overseas.
However she said it was outstanding to have a fully-qualified doctor like Dr Reid joining her.
