About The Clinic

Cleveland Medical is a personalised, quality private billing general practice, providing extensive services not offered by other practices within the Redland City community. For more information on the services we provide, please visit our Services page or our Facebook page.

In April 2012, our practice became one of the first general practices in Australia when we opted to achieve accreditation under the new 4th Edition RACGP Standards for General Practice.  We are due to be accredited again in 2018 under the 4th Standards for the third time. 

Achieving accreditation is a voluntary process, and an Australian General Practice Accreditation Limited (AGPAL) accredited practice means that you guarantee that safe and sterile equipment is used, patient records are secure, the practice is committed to ongoing education and training, your rights and needs as a patient are respected, regular improvements are made in services offered to you, and most importantly, you are delivered high-quality patient care. To learn more about the benefits of 
accreditation to you, your family and the Australian community click here or visit www.agpal.com.au.

At Cleveland Medical, we operate on an appointment system. Appointments are available on the day for patients who are feeling unwell.

Melinda Mackie
(Practice Manager)

In my role as Practice Manager, I utilise my accumulated skills and experience from over 20 years in the customer service and medical industries. I have a passion for the delivery of excellent customer service and am very proud to be leading the team at Cleveland Medical.

I continue to participate in other professional development activities in order to maximise my skills and industry knowledge for the benefit of our patients as it is of upmost importance to me that Cleveland Medical continues to deliver a high standard of medical care and desirable outcomes for all our patients.

In addition to my involvement in the practice accreditation, I am a qualified Agpal practice surveyor.

Our practice is actively striving to achieve the best possible outcomes for our patients.  We embrace change to enable this and believe we are at the cutting edge of any new developments.

Dr Redman enjoys the variety of general practice, but particularly enjoys looking after families, antenatal care and women's health.
