The Bright Side Clinic WE ARE HERE FOR YOU!


we are a practice that believes in great service

At The Bright Side Clinic, our goal is to provide the comfort and high-quality care of the old-fashioned Family Practice.  We take the time to listen, to talk, to make sure you feel in control of your health. We’d love to be part of your team, helping to keep you healthy.

If you like to be proactive about your health, one of the best things you can do is to form a strong, ongoing relationship with a trustworthy medical practitioner.

We like to foster a culture of teamwork at The Bright Side, and we aim to provide the best in science-based, up to date medical care in a warm and welcoming environment.

As the creation of a husband and wife team of GPs, the Bright Side Clinic aims to provide the comfort and high-quality care of an old-fashioned Family Practice. Drs. Jon and Emma Coldwell moved their young family from Adelaide in 2013 to enjoy the lifestyle of the beautiful Byron Shire. We are proud to serve the greater Byron community, providing the best in science-based medicine.

Our tight-knit team brings a broad and rich variety of training, work and life experiences to their roles. This important team dynamic translates to a genuinely warm and caring environment where your health is our priority.

Of course, we offer everything you’d expect from a medical centre – from health checks, preventative medicine, contraception, and care of acute illness and injuries, to help managing ongoing conditions. Additionally, each of our doctors has their own particular area of interest and expertise, plus our wonderful Practice Nurse who is trained in pathology collection and wound management.

We offer bulk-billed skin checks and affordable skin surgery, and you can rest assured that these procedures are performed only by doctors with relevant further training and qualifications. Our diverse team has special interests which include pregnancy care, sexual health and mental health. In particular, we see ‘mental health’ as a broad topic which applies to everyone. Happiness, sleep, well-being, stress-management and balancing the demands of your busy life are all things that can be helped by seeing your GP.



Why Us

At the Bright Side Clinic, we know the value of an ongoing relationship with a GP that you know and trust. This ‘continuity of care’ leads to better health outcomes for you and for the community. We are proud to provide only the best in science- and evidence-based medicine. As consumers of health services and as taxpayers, we all deserve to be able to trust our health care providers. This is why it is a matter of principle to us here at the Bright Side that we do not offer nor endorse unfounded or disproven practices. We are happy to answer any and every question you might have about your health and well-being. The team at the Bright Side looks forward to partnering with you in your health.
