GRAFTON'S GP Superclinic has tripled its staff since opening its doors just 11 months ago.

When the clinic started it could only provide GP services and had just eight staff, whereas today it employs 25 people and provides patients with physio, counselling, occupational therapy, speech pathology and tele hook-ups to specialists out of the area.

The clinic welcomed its newest addition yesterday, psychologist Belinda Cooper, who moved to the Valley from Darwin and is originally from England.

One of the areas Ms Cooper is most passionate about working in is counselling for carers.

"Carers remove a large burden from the State system and too often their needs are simply forgotten," said Ms Cooper.

Practice manager Nathan Riseley said he was happy with the way the clinic was progressing.

"We have over 3000 active patients on the books and we have managed to bulk bill 81.6% of them since opening," he said.

The clinic will expand its opening hours to 8am-8pm early next year and has just been accredited to help train the next generation of doctors.
