Sanctuary Sanitarium management and team would like to advise you that
we closed our medical practice and services permanently on Friday 29 January 2016

We commenced serving the community in Pyrmont in 2010 and believe we had the pleasure and opportunity to make a real and positive difference to this community. Our team of caring professionals have enjoyed being part of the local service community and offering our clients support for their health and wellbeing.

Through Sanctuary, we have gained valuable insights into community health and experience in developing practical local community programs. Whilst Sanctuary Medical Practice has not been a long-term viable model for us, we aim to take these learnings into future health and wellbeing programs we are developing.

Our practitioners will inevitability keep practicing at other rooms/clinics. Some have other rooms already and will advise their patients of these. Others are in the process on securing facilities. We will progressively advise you below where our practitioners will be practising. 

Over the past five years, additional medical and health services have been established within the local area, so we feel assured that the community will be able to continue to access quality health care and support. We will also communicate information (below) regarding any Sanctuary practitioners who may be relocating or establishing their services nearby.

We would like to express our sincere thanks to you as our community for supporting us. Together we have been part of the journey that has developed Pyrmont into a vibrant community.

Previous Patients:

  • You may request to transfer your medical records to a doctor of your choice by contacting Dr Pennington on: info @ sanctuaryclinic . com . au or fax  02 9037 7385 
    You will need to provide a signed transfer request that includes your new Doctors signature, your signature, name, address and DOB. Most General Practices have a standard tranfer request form which can be used for this task. Due to privacy and security concerns, records cannot be emailed, they can only be posted via registered post.
