Allan casting for a Richie Brace
Allan Donnelly started practicing podiatry again in 2007 after moving to Bungendore in 2000. When Allan first came to the region he built the family home and started work at Odana/Bloomfield resolving legal breaches of copyright, etc. He then was the instigator of setting up the Bungendore Community Bank Branch in Bungendore which opened on 1 July 2006, two weeks before the birth of his second child.
Deciding to practice podiatry again, Allan spent the rest of 2006 organising his new practice and started Bungendore Podiatry Services in 2007. Due to Dr Marjorie Cross' encouragement, Allan began one day a week at Bungendore Medical Centre. He then followed this with half a day at Braidwood, quickly turning to a full day. Allan then started at The Surgery at Jerra in Jerrabomberra two days a week. He later moved to the Jerrabomberra Medical Centre where he was based two days a week. He then included an Residential Aged Care Facility in Garran, Southern Cross Care and so what started out as a three day a fortnight podiatry service developed into full time.
After ten years of working out of medical centres in Bungendore, Braidwood and Jerrabomberra plus Southern Cross Care, the Jerrabomberra Medical Centre was sold to an international corporation whereby the new owners required more rooms for doctors so Allan had to leave. Allan decided it was time to consolidate his practice to be able to offer his patients a more comprehensive service with a view to establishing a High Risk Foot Clinic. On 11 January 2017, Qcity Podiatry and Healthcare opened.
