History of the Practice

1913 1913 The property was purpose-built as a doctor's surgery and residence for Dr Frank Brierley who began this practice in 1913. He originally owned the property on the corner and operated the practice from there, but as the then Bank of NSW wanted the corner block, a deal was made to build both the former Westpac building and this home with surgery at 67 Hill Street Roseville 1937 1937 The current waiting room is the original one and the original surgery was the room on the right as you enter the back. Dr Brierley died in 1937, aged 51, and Alec Gray, who was living in 1 Hill Street from 1935, moved over to this building in 1937 and stayed until 1942 when he joined the army. 1942 1942 Dr Maurice Deck took over the practice and building in 1942. Subsequently Dr Edward (Ned) Cortis, who lived in Roseville Ave, also joined the practice in about 1948/49. He had returned from war service. When Dr Deck died unfortunately at a relatively young age of 45 years from pancreatic cancer, Dr Patrick Gordon took over ownership of the property with Dr Cortis continuing as his partner. 1957 1957
