Who We Are 2017-08-02T01:53:40+00:00

WHO WE ARE

The Mate Street Medical is a well established practice specialising in all areas of General Medicine. We don’t believe in five minute medicine. We believe in giving you, the patient, the time you need each and every time. There is no rush, we want you to feel comfortable and satisfied with the service we provide.

WHAT WE DO

Our values are old fashioned, can’t get here telephone us and we will come and get you. Home visits are available and are triaged through the practice nurse. We want you to come back. We want to promote good health for you and your family. We want to help prevent you from becoming sick and be there for you when you are.

MEET THE TEAM AT MATE STREET MEDICAL

DR JIRI POUPA

DOCTOR

Dr Jiri Poupa has been a GP in North Albury for over forty years. He has dedicated his life to the health and well being of his patients. He now sees third generation patients and many that he himself delivered. Dr Poupa has visiting rights at Mercy Palliative Care and often admits patients from surrounding areas who are in desperate need of a local GP so that they may pass peacefully, in the place of their choosing. Dr Poupa also attends nursing homes on a weekly basis. Dr Poupa has not let age slow him down although he does plan on bowing out gracefully to part- time work in the next twelve months.

DR LEIGH BENNIE

DOCOTOR

Dr Leigh Bennie is a local boy and has been in the northeast for many years. Leigh has an exceptional knowledge base on all things clinical and is also an accredited GP supervisor. Leigh has a special interest in dermatology and performs all of our procedural work at the clinic. Leigh also has a keen interest in womens health and is able to insert both Mirena’s and Implanon’s. Leigh does not work to a strict 15 minute appointment time, when you book explain you may need longer and you will be accommodated. Leigh does our home visits and is on our after hours roster.

HELEN BARTER

REGISTERED NURSE

Helen Barter is our Registered Nurse. Helen has Graduate Diploma in primary health care and is studying her Masters Degree to be a Nurse Practitioner in primary health care. Helen sees herself as being very fortunate to be under the guidance of such skilled clinicians at Mate Street Medical. All nursing services are offered, with after hours calls being triaged by Helen and then forwarded as required. Home visits for assessment of needs are available as are in home wound dressings. Helen enjoys the challenges of Chronic Disease Management and enjoys the involvement her role allows her to have with her patients and families. Helen believes there is nothing that can’t be fixed nor treated and the practice at Mate Street is very patient centred. Tea and coffee is available whilst waiting for appointments.
