At O’Brien Street General Practice, our doctors believe in fostering health in human diversity and offering good medicine to all people, without judgement.

Established in 1991, O’Brien Street since 2005 is a joint collaboration with SA Health. It is fully accredited by Australian General Practice Accreditation Limited and provides a full range of medical services by male and female doctors:

  • Comprehensive medical care for babies through to the elderly
  • Immunisations, travel advice, sexual health and palliative care
  • Bulk-billing available for concession cardholders, pensioners and children under 16 years of age

Located in the southwest corner of Adelaide city at 17 O’Brien Street, Adelaide. From the city, the bus to catch for closest access with the most frequency to us is G10.

This bus travels down King William Street, through Victoria Square and along Grote Street. It then travels along Morphett Street and around Whitmore Square and then heads along Sturt Street. The stop closest to us is Y1, which is located outside Sturt Street Primary School.

Alight from the bus and walk towards West Terrace: O'Brien Street is on the left.

Please note that if you are driving to us, we have no on-site parking but parks are generally found nearby in Gilbert Street.

Please note that Drugs of Dependence are generally not prescribed in an initial new patient appointment at O'Brien Stret- your initial appointment is an assessment by the GP.

 Our SMS reminder system is now interactive- when you receive your reminder, you are asked to reply with Yes to keep the appointment or No to decline. If you fail to accept the appointment, it will be removed from the system and offered to another patient.

Please note that the reply system is not designed to allow you to send us a message: it is purely a yes/no response system for appointments.

 Dr Sarah Makinson and Dr Mark Fuller have now closed their books for new patient referrals.

 Check in with Reception and take the opportunity to update your address, phone and mobile phone details.

We request your assistance in making O'Brien Street Practice a safe place for everybody.

Please help us by maintaining appropriate and respectful behaviour.

Thank you


Seasonal Flu Vaccinations  2016- Updated delivery details 14.4.2016

The seasonal flu vaccine has now arrived for those eligible for free vaccination under the National Immunisation Program

The vaccines used this year under the National Immunisation Program are of the quadrivalent variety (QIV)- FluQuadri Junior for children under 3 years of age and Fluarix for ages 3 and older.

Whilst you may see Trivalent vaccines (TIV) available in certain pharmacies, the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation reccomends the use of QIVs in preference to TIVs. TIVs are acceptable if QIVs are unavailable.


Check with your GP if you qualify for a free immunisation  or else make an appointment to get a prescription  to have one done. 

 *unless advised otherwise by National Immunisation Program



We see patients by appointment only- call us on 8231 4026 and our reception team will arrange a suitable time with an available doctor.
