LOCKYER Valley Regional Council has approved an application to extend the doctors' surgery in William St, Gatton subject to conditions.  

Lockyer Doctors had requested an addition to their premises on the northern side of their carpark facing William St between the current tenancy and the street front.  

The proposal contains consulting rooms for an optometrist, a physiotherapist, a psychologist, a shared training room, allied health room, a combined reception and waiting room area and storage areas.  

The premises will also be used after business hours for medical student and staff training activities as The Lockyer Doctors is an endorsed medical training practice.  

According to council documents the majority of the staff (apart from practitioners) would be relocated from existing tenancies.  

Lockyer Valley Mayor Steve Jones said it was crucial health services in the region were available for residents and said this extension would help meet the demands of the region.  

"Ensuring that everyone is provided with the best care possible is at the forefront of our concern which is why we place such an emphasis on health care facilities in the region," Cr Jones said.  

"Lockyer Doctors is committed to becoming a one-stop health shop for residents by including a whole suite of complementary medical and allied health services in one premises."  

Lockyer Doctors had earlier tried to buy a neighbouring building but were unsuccessful.
