Here at CFP we have health practitioners who work together to provide a more comprehensive and targeted approach to your health needs.
We believe that the health care needs of our patients are better met by providing a comprehensive initial assessment and systematic approach to treatment.
We promote and value shared decision making between the patient and the practitioner and we believe the patient and the practitioner are equal partners in the health and wellbeing solution. We also incorporate kindness and compassion as part of a patient treatment plan.
We support and empower patients to make the choices that allow them to look after their own wellbeing.
FOR ALL YOUR HEALTH NEEDS
CFP CAN HELP
Our holistic approach to delivering health services means that we offer a diverse set of services to improve the well-being of patients in a rounded way in a friendly and familiar setting. Our range of services even includes after-hours care, a new service that we hope will be of benefit not just to the residents of Cygnet but also the wider region including Huonville.

We are committed To our community
Cygnet Family Practice is a caring, integrated, holistic primary health care service which aims to provide the best possible care in partnership with our patients, our employees, our community and our environment.
Carl and Linda Childs van Wijk recognised that Cygnet Family Practice had a unique form of healthcare – kind and holistic and ‘nothing like we had experienced before”.
When the practice needed new ownership, they offered support by a generous philanthropic arrangement. At the same time, Kerrie Duggan, Nurse Practitioner, was working in the practice. She had always dreamed of working in a practice which provided a nursing model providing preventative health care and health promotion, in collaboration with doctors whose philosophy aligned with hers. Together with the Childs van Wijks, Kerrie shares ownership of Cygnet Family Practice and has provided leadership in growing the practice to now provide a choice of nursing and medical services to Cygnet, the surrounding area, and the wider Huon Valley region.
Most importantly, holistic care is proactive. We take the time to plan ahead and apply preventative strategies to prevent future illness.
