GPcare General Practice is located at the Summit Health Centre, Wellington Rd Mt Barker and is one of a number of clinical services provided by Summit Health.

GPcare is a not-for- profit, locally focused general practice committed to improving the health of our Adelaide Hills community.

We provide coordinated health care in a welcoming environment and consult alongside a large number of other health professionals in the Summit Health Centre.

It can be difficult arranging appointments with all your health care providers, our relationship with the medical specialists, nursing and allied health professionals consulting at the Centre enables us to provide you with a coordinated, comprehensive health care experience in one location.

A large number of our medical, nursing and practice staff proudly declare themselves as ‘Hills locals’.

We are located next to, and have a strong working relationship with, the Mt Barker Hospital. All our GPs have admitting rights to the hospital enabling patients to receive comprehensive care should they require admission.

COVID-19 Update

Due to South Australia's excellent work in limiting the spread of COVID-19 we are pleased to advise that from Tuesday 9 June
GPcare will be offering both Telehealth (phone consult) and face-to-face appointments.

We will continue to check temperatures and ask a couple of questions on arrival.

For face-to-face appointments we ask that you arrive as close as possible to your appointment time to minimise the number of people in our waiting areas.
Where possible we ask you to come by yourself or with one support person.

If you are booking a face-to-face appointment you will be asked screening questions on the phone
so we can determine how best to manage your visit; to protect our patients, staff and doctors.

If you have a fever, cough, sore throat or runny nose we ask you to advise our staff;
and you will be provided with a face mask to wear for your appointment.

Face-to-face appointments can only be made by phoning GPcare on 1300 472 273;
otherwise for Telehealth consultations book online at

Call 000 if you need urgent medical help.
