NUMed Initiates Its First Branch Of Medical Clinics

Newcastle University Medicine Malaysia (NUMed) opened its first primary care centre, Newcastle Medical Clinic on 22nd September 2019. Nestled in Eco Botanic, Nusajaya Johor, the clinic is part of NUMed’s ambitious expansion plans as one of the top medical education providers in the country to enhance healthcare services for the surrounding communities.

The opening ceremony was presided by Prof. David Burn, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for the Faculty of Medical Sciences of Newcastle University, and officiated by Prof. Chris Day, Vice-Chancellor & President of Newcastle University. The event included a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the building, followed by a reception and tour of the facility for the VIPs and guests.

The initiation of Newcastle Medical Clinic, said Prof. Chris Day, attempts to provide a community-centered care that addresses medical, social, and environmental factors influencing health – and to take a collaborative approach with patients and community stakeholders to address health disparities.

“Newcastle Medical Clinic is designed to help meet the specific needs of the community here. Together, we’re not only providing families with convenient access to quality UK medical care, we’re integrating resources to truly help enhance their health,” Prof. Day added.

Dedicated to providing the highest quality of UK healthcare, the clinic provides comprehensive services for all ages including family medicine, health screening, minor surgical procedure, and electrocardiography as well as other support services designed to blend clinical expertise with optimal patient experience.

Based on the UK Model of Consultation, Newcastle Medical Clinic would also emphasise strongly on a two-way communication between doctor and patient to conclude to a fully-informed decision and incorporate the use of evidence-based treatments that are on par with the international guidelines.

Newcastle Medical Clinic is open from 8.30 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. on Tuesdays to Sundays, and prospective patients can set up appointments by calling 07-555 4010.
