WEALTH OF HEALTH FOR ADF FAMILIES If the groundwork of all happiness is good health then Dr Reuben Scott and the team at Bamford Medical are the cheer leaders! After 40 years of nurturing the community’s health and wellbeing, this local medical stalwart stands out as a major supporter of Townsville’s current and former ADF service men and women. “At Bamford Medical we believe it’s important to provide Defence families with a high level of care that can support them in meeting the challenges they face,” Dr Scott said. “They sacrifice so much for the greater good of the community and we like to be able to help make the transition to their new home easily by organising all of their health care needs with the best health providers.” A time-honoured Queenslander, Dr Scott graduated from medicine at James Cook University and underwent his GP training in the Townsville region, including Charters Towers and Ayr. “Raising a family while working and training has given me firsthand experience with the challenges of family life, so I can really empathise with Defence members and their families and the unique encounters

they come across,” Dr Scott explained. “As a husband and father of three young children myself, I particularly enjoy supporting families as they grow, ensuring that parents have access to the care and information they need for them and their kids.” The rest of the team at Bamford Medical, made up of Dr Sarah Willard, Dr Alan Nelson, Dr Shahead Chowdhury and Dr Paco Munoz, all place a strong emphasis on caring for our Defence community and their families. “It’s our priority to make everyone feel comfortable and take the time to explain everything when caring for your child, adolescent or yourself,” Dr Scott said. “We perform all vaccinations and child health checks and we accept the ADF Family Health Card which means we can reimburse you at the time of your consultation.” Patients are able to book same day appointments at either Bamford Medical or at their associated Rosslea Medical Centre.
