About Canning Medical Centre

Quality healthcare you can trust

When it comes to looking after your health, it’s important to register with a trusted medical centre and to visit for regular check-ups.

Whether you suffer from an ongoing condition that requires constant management or you’re in good health, it’s best to undergo routine health checks to ensure everything’s as it should be.

Our team of experts here at Canning Medical Centre will always make you feel welcome and can handle all types of general medical conditions. This means that, should you require treatment, you’ll receive it promptly, benefitting from early intervention rather than dealing with a bigger issue further down the road.

Quality healthcare you can trust

Canning Medical Centre provides trusted healthcare services to patients throughout Fremantle, working with patients young and old. Our friendly clinic is staffed by a team of doctors and nurses who can handle all types of conditions and who will always make you feel incredibly welcome.

At Canning Medical Centre, we also offer urgent primary care services as required and provide personalised care plans for all of our patients. This means you can always expect treatment that’s tailor-made to meet your individual needs.


Established in the 1920s by Dr Basil Hallion in North Fremantle, Canning Medical Centre has been providing trusted healthcare services in the area for around 90 years. The practice was later passed on to Dr Max Canning in the 1950s, who was instrumental in building the current medical centre on High Street.

Assisted by a team of fellow doctors, Dr Canning continued to work in Canning Medical Centre until his death in 1995. His commitment to both the individual patient and the community as a whole lives on through the present-day medical team, which provides the same high-quality healthcare.

In 2017 the practice undertook a complete renovation internally and externally, the renovation will ensure the continuance of the quality healthcare that Canning Medical Centre has provided over the past fifty years.
