Jewells Medical Centre

Opening Hours: Monday - Friday 8:00 - 5:45, Saturday 8:00 - 12:00   

Appointments can now be made online - via the BOOK NOW button. If you require an urgent appointment or are unable to secure a suitable appointment this way please CALL US for assistance.

Please be particularly careful to advise reception when making and before your appointment if you have any symptoms of a respiratory infection (eg. fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, breathlessness) or are in close contact with someone with Covid or other infectious illness. 

We often experience a high number of inquiries for appointments. If you require urgent care and a more rapid appointment than is able to be routinely booked in please call to speak with our receptionists. We keep urgent "Book on the Day" appointments that are released from 8:00am each morning. We are open on Saturday mornings with one doctor on duty. This is a "walk-in" clinic. 

APPOINTMENT BOOK IS OPEN. Some of the doctors are now able to offer appointments to new patients. Please call us to inquire. New patient appointments are booked as "long" appointments to provide adequate time to understand your health history as well as help you with your present needs. Pre-payment is required for the first appointment.

About Us

Jewells Medical Centre was established in 1982 by Dr Chris Hindley in the Jewellstown shopping plaza, with the aims of providing caring, friendly and professional medical care to the community of Jewells, Belmont and the surrounding suburbs. Over the years since, Jewells Medical Centre has grown to continue to meet the needs of the community, whilst maintaining these same values. We seek to care for and promote the health of every individual and family we see, and strive to provide the highest standards of General Practice expertise across the ages and stages of life.

Jewells Medical Centre is conveniently located between the hubs of Belmont, Charlestown and Warners Bay. We are close to specialist medical, imaging and hospital services at Belmont and Gateshead, and only a short distance from Redhead Beach.

Entrance to our dedicated carpark is via the shopping plaza entry at the roundabout on Ntaba Road. After turning into the carpark entrance, turn to the right, continue around past the shopping plaza entrance, and directly down the hill where you will find our building. A detailed map may be found through our Contact Us page.

We are located in a purpose built medical centre with 8 doctor consulting rooms, treatment and emergency rooms, skilled nursing staff and a caring and professional welcoming and administration team. We have a dedicated Allied Health Building currently providing rooms for pathology collection, psychology, podiatry and audiology services.

We value your feedback and suggestions to enhance the quality of the care we provide. Please call, contact us or make use of the suggestion box at our counter if you would like to provide feedback.
