Welcome to the Blackburn Specialist Centre
We pride ourselves on a high level of professionalism whilst offering a warm and caring environment to our patients, staff & Specialists.
We have a broad range of highly regarded consulting Specialists and Allied Health Professionals. Most of our Specialists require a referral from your GP, but many Allied Health Professionals do not need a referral. Please telephone us on 9875 1161 if you are unsure whether you need a referral.
