The Peel Health Care Ltd Board have made the difficult decision to consolidate the Oxley and Peel practices as a result of changes in circumstances, some of which are beyond our control. This means that it is no longer viable to maintain the two separate locations.
We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience the relocation causes. We look forward to welcoming you at Peel Health Care for your next appointment and continuing to provide you quality care.
Yours sincerely, Oxley and Peel Health Care Management and Staff
At Oxley Health Care we pride ourselves on attracting the best general practitioners to Tamworth. We believe that living in a major regional centre should mean you have access to highly trained and professional doctors who have a wealth of experience.
We encourage the doctors to continue their education, to be part of our strong team environment and to play a role in mentoring young doctors.
Most importantly, patients at Oxley Health Care have their own doctor – so they can build a health history, feel at ease, and develop an important doctor-patient relationship. We think this results in better care for each patient.
The doctors practising through Oxley Health Care don’t have to worry about the management or everyday running of the practice, they can come to work and do what they do best – care for their patients and practice outstanding medicine.
Both male and female doctors practise at Oxley Health Care, with a vast array of interests and specialist areas. The doctors are part of a team of health care professionals including the practice nursing team and diabetes educator.
Oxley Health Care is unique, because it offers a team of qualified allied health professionals working with the doctors and practice nurses to provide specialised care.
The allied health team are available to see both private and referred patients and who are not required to be an Oxley Health Care patient to access these services. Allied health care services are available at the Oxley Health Care premises by appointment.
Oxley Health Care employs a highly skilled team of primary health care nurses. These professional and specifically trained nurses work alongside doctors and the allied health professionals providing a wide variety of prevention cure and well-being care.
Our nurses specialise in areas such as women’s health, childhood immunisation, family planning, respiratory medicine, chronic disease management, and wound care.
The highly skilled administrative team at Peel Health Care Ltd is the backbone of Peel Health Care and Oxley Health Care and provides all management and administrative functions to keep the practices running smoothly.

Doctors ... looking for a lifestyle change with all the benefits of a large practice?
Oxley Health Care operates under the unique Easy Entry, Gracious Exit model. This means the management and everyday running of the practices is taken care of by a management team – allowing doctors
the time to focus on their patients, career development, teaching, and lifestyle.
Doctors at Oxley Health Care choose their own hours, days of work and the number of patients they wish to see, allowing for greater flexibility and work/life balance.
There are currently 16 doctors practising within our two practices, making ours among the larger providers of health administration and support services to general practitioners in regional NSW.
This gathering of GPs has resulted in a strong medical network that plays a vital role in teaching with the University of Newcastle, professional development and support.
Being a not-for-profit organisation, all profits made at Oxley Health Care are returned to the practices, providing better care for patients, up-to-date medical equipment and a professional working environment.
Peel Health Care Ltd has one of the best rates in NSW regional centres for attracting and retaining general practitioners that practise through its facilities. We believe our success is due to a number of factors, including:
- our unique Easy Entry, Gracious Exit model of management that allows doctors the time to focus on their patients, career development, teaching, and lifestyle – leaving all of the practice management to our administrative staff
- the strong network of medical and health professionals now present in Tamworth, providing support and a medical community

- the extensive opportunities for teaching and professional development in Tamworth with the new Tamworth Education Centre and construction of the new Tamworth Base Hospital
