About Us

Hughes Family Practice is a locally owned practice that has been operating in Hughes since the early 1970’s. The practice was started by Dr Jim McCauley, who retired in 2001, and handed over the reins to Dr Michelle Barrett. Dr Barrett welcomed Dr Patrick O’Callaghan as co principal in 2007 and they remain the principals to this day.
