Visit Narooma Lighthouse Surgery

Our aim is to provide the best holistic and patient centred health care on the south coast. Team work and supporting each other is our strength.

Our focus is very much centred on preventative health care, however, as we do not have access to a hospital in Narooma, our team are used to dealing with all types of acute situations and often become the first port of call for our patients in an emergency.

Call us on 02 4476 2999 to make an appointment.

Respiratory Clinic

On Monday 11th May 2020, The Lighthouse Surgery will open as a Department of Health COVID 19 Respiratory Clinic.

The respiratory clinic will help the local health care services – taking the pressure off hospitals and general practices by providing dedicated treatment to people with mild-to-moderate symptoms of fever or sore throat, cough, fatigue or shortness of breath.
