Doctor signs five year lease to operate Tiaro medical centre

THE TIARO community will have new healthcare options with local doctor Suzy Baudeouf signing a five-year lease to operate from the town's medical centre.

Dr Baudeouf will open her practice in its new location on January 6.

Division Two councillor Phil Truscott said months of negotiations with a number of prospective tenants had paid off.

"Dr Baudeouf has been operating out of a facility at Bauple for the past 12 months and we are thrilled to have her moving into the Tiaro Medical Centre," he said.

"She has also indicated that she will look to recruit another doctor to join the practice next year, which means she can open her books to new patients and expand her practice.

"I really want to thank everyone involved for their patience, especially the residents of Tiaro and the surrounding areas.

"It has been a long process but we now have the best outcome for all involved."
