Sanctuary Lifestyle Clinic is the concept of Dr Andrew Pennington, a GP committed to using lifestyle strategies along with conventional and natural remedies to prevent, arrest and reverse disease processes wherever possible.
Dr Pennington was previously a contracted GP at Sanctuary Medical Practice in Pyrmont, a medical practice using lifestyle medicine to meet the needs of the community of Pyrmont and surrounds. It operated for 5 years until its closure in January 2016. Prior to that he worked as a GP Obstetrician in rural Victoria.
Although Dr Pennington was sad to see Sanctuary Medical Practice close, he was keen for the spirit of the practice to live on. Hence the birth of Sanctuary Lifestyle Clinic. The Clinic has now expanded its service to include clinical nutrition and naturopathy and is looking at a dental model of practice that compliments the holistic lifestyle focus.
Former Sanctuary Medical Practice patients will notice similar design features of the logo and styling which has been deliberately kept to allow continuity of the Sanctuary story.
Sanctuary Lifestyle Clinic will be storing the medical records of previous patients for up to 7 years from their last consultation, or until the age of 25, whichever is sooner, as is required by law.
If you are a former patient of Sanctuary Medical Practice Pyrmont, and you would like a copy of your medical records transferred to a new GP, please phone 1300 723 070, fax 02 9307 7385 or send us a message online and provide a signed transfer request form (most General Practices have a standard “transfer request” form) and we will transfer your records accordingly.
