Dr Nick Meyers graduated from UQ with a MBBS in 2002, having previously obtained a Bachelor of Science from UNSW in 1991 prior to the completion of his Masters in 1992. Dr Meyers became a fellow of RACGP in 2006 after completing his GP Registrar training in Toowoomba at Wilsonton Medical Centre and the former Middle Ridge Medical Centre.


Upon completion of this GP training, the opportunity presented itself for Dr Meyers to once again work with the doctors from Wilsonton Medical Centre at their new practice in Highfields, Village Medical Centre which opened in January 2006. Ten years on, Nick continues to practice at Village Medical Centre. He is an original director of Platinum Health Group and is currently the Chair of the Board.

Throughout his GP career, Nick has also participated in extra activities such as being a FRACGP examiner and supervising a local cardiac rehabilitation program. Over the years he has mentored the next generation of doctors completing their training across various levels, from medical students to residents and to GP Registrars through his role as a GPTQ Supervisor for those registrars placed at Village Medical Centre.

In 2000 Dr Butler relocated to the Darling Downs area, accepting a position as an Obstetrics and Gynaecology PHO at the Toowoomba Base Hospital.

After returning to England and completing his GP training in the Bristol area, he and his soon-to-be wife immigrated permanently to Toowoomba. In 2006 Roland started working at Village Medical Centre where he continues to work today.

Dr Owen has been involved in GP registrar training over the past ten years and has enjoyed being involved with the training and personal growth of many outstanding young doctors.  Roland have been involved in healthcare politics and advocacy over the last eight years helping lead the development of primary care in our region having been first drawn to this area being one of the younger GPs and seeing a need to attract and retain more younger doctors to the Toowoomba region. Dr Owen has served on the board of GP Connections (our local former division of General Practice) for a five year period and was Chair for the final two years.

Roland helped lead GP Connections to successfully partner with the Darling Downs Hospital & Health service (DDHHS) to win the competitive bid to form the new PHN in our region. He was the inaugural Chair of the Darling Downs West Moreton PHN from 2015 to 2016. Roland is passionate about improving healthcare at a regional level as well as the individual level that he works on a day to day.

Clinically, he is interested in chronic disease management and see the unique relationship that GPs have with their patient as one of the most valuable tools in healthcare today. This deep understanding is often overlooked outside of Primary Care, yet is one of the most important factors in good healthcare.

He also have a special interest in skin cancer surgery and has been honing his skills working as a surgical assistant with a General Surgeon in Toowoomba for the last ten years. Roland enjoys the breadth and depth of care that he can provide to his patients as a GP, from birth to old age, whether maintaining good health or managing the delicate balance of multiple chronic diseases.
