Practice History

The practice is a long established one in Hobart having served the local community from this site since 1946 when it was first started by Dr Paul Clarke. Dr McLaren Thomson joined him after WW2.

Initially there was a small sandstone cottage in Sandy Bay Road, just outside the door into the McDonald’s car park. Then the current building was added to this. The original building was lost to the practice and eventually demolished to make way for McDonalds in 1996.
