Welcome to Central Coast's Innovative Medical Centre


We would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land, the Darkinjung people, on which our clinic is situated. We pay our respects to the elders both past, present and emerging. This land was, and always will be Aboriginal land.

Who we are

Next Practice Erina was opened in March 2019 when dear friends Dr Nicole Avard and Jarrah Eddy came together with Next Practice to open this beautiful clinic space.

Nicole and Jarrah dared to imagine how to do things better, to reimagine a clinic space, embrace technology, prioritise a well supported patient journey, support families as a unit and build a model of care that allowed for this. So the collaboration with Next Practice was an obvious pairing as they also shared this vision and so much more.

With the mission to have a beautiful calm space, a welcoming team of Patient Advocates, cutting edge technology, and a Care team of passionate and skilled practitioners, Next Practice Erina has been buzzing ever since.

Our mission

At Next Practice Erina, our mission is to provide patient centered, kind and comprehensive care.

About our Team Based Care

At Next Practice Erina, we offer a new and innovative Team Based model of care. This guarantees you have access to ongoing care with Dr Nicole Avard at prices you can afford.

A New Kind of reimagined space and experience

Imagine walking into a welcoming, modern Living Room instead of a waiting room where you feel like a number. Imagine being greeted by a Patient Advocate instead of a receptionist. Imagine short wait times, zen-like designs, relaxing music, refreshments, iPad check-ins and more. Imagine A New Kind of healthcare.

(This was the pre-covid experience and we are so looking forward to a time when the cups of tea flow again).

Giving back with Next Aid

What is Next Aid?

At Next Practice, we want to create pathways for those who may be facing challenges, providing them with the support and resources they need to succeed. That's why we’ve partnered with UNICEF Australia to support their maternal and neonatal health program in PNG. We call it our Next Aid initiative.

Over the next three years Next Practice have committed to providing funds that improve maternal, newborn and child healthcare, with a focus on contributing to Tetanus-Diphtheria vaccinations, helping children in the region to thrive and fulfil their potential.
