The History of Patrick Street Clinic
The medical company that has become the Patrick Street Clinic originated when Dr Lachlan Gollan became Ulverstone’s first resident doctor in around 1920, soon to be joined by Dr Ferris.
This practice was based at what is now Gollan Court in King Edward Street. Dr Trevor Walker joined in about 1946, and following the retirement of the original partners, was joined by Drs. Don and Jean Brick in 1957. Dr Tony Large bought out Dr Walker in 1960 and moved with the Bricks to new premises in King Edward Street that year.
This firm moved to the current location in Patrick Street in 1981. The building underwent a substantial extension in 1999 to improve facilities and enlarge waiting room for greater patient comfort. The project also created an extra consulting room and staff area and reception. Further extensive renovations including another consulting room, theatre, emergency room and treatment room were completed in 2006 creating a modern up-to-date medical facility.
