Welcome to Melbourne's Medical Centre of the Future

Our mission

At Next Practice our mission, put simply, is to provide the best healthcare experience on the planet Earth!

A New Kind of reimagined space and experience

Imagine walking into a GP clinic and feeling a sense of calm and support. A space where you are greeted by a medically trained Patient Advocate who understands your healthcare needs. They offer you a refreshment and direct you to your favourite seat within our day-spa like Living Room (also known as the waiting room). With calming music crafted to match your resting heart rate and aromatherapy to increase relaxation. Imagine a New Kind of healthcare.

Who we are

Next Practice Prahran opened in February 2019 with a mission to provide a new healthcare experience to locals in Melbourne. We wanted to reimagine how healthcare can be experienced and chose the iconic Prahran Station Hotel to make our imprint on.

Our practice owner, Jonathon Somers is an Occupational Therapist who keeps patient centred care front of mind. Jonathon believes the way patients experience healthcare - The Patient Journey - is just as important as the care itself and with that in mind the beautiful clinic was built, alike team members selected and the doors to the once dormant station hotel were opened again.

A New Kind of powerful technology

Your journey starts at the click of a button with convenient booking online or via the Patient App. Put your healthcare back into your hands - book and manage appointments, review prescriptions, set reminders for medication, track your health progress, view educational articles from your doctor and more... Our mission is to continually innovate to make your healthcare journey simpler and more convenient.

We believe in wellbeing and prevention, not just helping you when you get sick. Keeping you well also means:

  • Keeping you Covid safe and making Telehealth consultations available
  • Making it easy to book online
  • Keeping wait times as short as possible
  • Allowing you to fill in your details at home before your appointment for faster check-in
  • Sharing helpful articles from our Care Team direct to your phone
  • Having care plans for Chronic Disease management
  • Discounted prices for children under 16 and health care card holders

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.
