Our Mission

Our mission is to serve the community using key pillars of evidence-based medicine to raise standards of wellbeing within the Byron Bay community.

Believing that everybody deserves access to exceptional healthcare, whether you’re young, elderly, a permanent resident, on holiday, male, female, have an ongoing condition or simply require a one-off visit, The Bright Side Clinic strives to provide the very best patient outcomes when it comes to both physical and mental health.

Our Team

Founded by Jon and Emma Coldwell, GPs with extensive experience as community doctors, The Bright Side Clinic offers a multidisciplinary approach to medicine that aims to provide the very best healthcare outcomes for patients.

Emma and Jon lead a team of doctors, nurses, allied health and support staff, all dedicated to your health and wellbeing.

The Bright Side Clinic team are committed to creating and nurturing local relationships and providing a non-judgemental, caring and professional medical service to residents and visitors of Byron Bay and surrounds.
In addition to our general practice services, we also offer advanced skin cancer detection and management.

The Bright Side Clinic is an Accredited Medical Practice, and serves as a training practice for medical students and GP Registrars.

We are an accredited Yellow Fever Vaccination clinic.

Our Location

Our clinic is located in the Byron Bay arts and industrial estate, alongside a pharmacy, North Coast Radiology and Sullivan Nicolaides pathology, reducing the need for patients to travel to a number of locations to attend to their health.

We strive to ensure you have a positive experience at our clinic. Expect clean, welcoming and modern facilities and feel free to peruse our interesting art collection on display.

Our Philosophies:

  • Help patients take control of their health and make health and wellbeing a priority
  • Provide convenient access to treatment for a range of health conditions
  • Commit to evidence-based medicine, a privilege of our modern healthcare system
  • Provide a caring space where patients can discuss conditions in a non-judgmental and supportive environment
  • Address the complexities surrounding mental health and reduce the impact of mental health on physical health
