Australian General Practice Accreditation Limited (AGPAL) - Top Accreditation Honour

Globe Medical received the top accreditation honour from AGPAL in October, demonstrating the quality and safety of our Hindmarsh Square clinic. Being accredited ensures all Globe Medical patients will continue to receive high quality service and care that meets RACGP’s standards. Well done to all involved.

Donation of Medical Supplies to the Kingdom of Tonga

In early October, Globe Medical was proud to personally deliver and donate 60kg of medical supplies to the outpatient clinic in Neiafu, Vava'u, Tonga. A big thanks to all our supplier partners, who contributed so very generously towards our joint effort. It was pleasure visiting the Kingdom of Tonga.
