Men's health month for raising awareness for importance of visiting doctors for men's health concern

Telehealth for Men’s Health: Start a conversation

Traditionally, men have never been good at talking about their health concerns, but now telehealth paves a way for men to begin difficult conversions without having to physically attend a clinic. In a recent Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) survey, it revealed patients are beginning to heed the message, understanding telehealth as an effective method of healthcare. So, for all the guys out there, if you have a concern you’re not talking about, make a telehealth appointment today and start the conversation. You can book online for appointments or call us at (07) 4633 9000

We are here for your mental well-being

Even as restrictions begin to ease, some in the community will begin to feel the knock-on of the pandemic and its effect on mental health. Some will have to deal with feelings of uncertainty, the loss of employment, the virus itself, even a general unease as we begin to readjust and try to get on with our daily lives.

If you feel you’re not coping, speak to a friend, family, or colleagues, or speak with your GP who will always be there to help you. To book a telehealth appointment now visit https://gpsoncurzon.com.au/appointments/ or call 4633 9000.

Flatten the curve

The best way to prevent getting COVID-19 is to avoid it. To stop the spread, everyone must practice social distancing, stay at home if possible, wash your hands regularly, especially after touching foreign or public surfaces, and do not touch your eyes, nose, or mouth before washing your hands. You can stop the spread, avoid getting sick, and flatten the curve.
