Partners in Health August 2020

It's safe to see your GP

It's safe to see your GP and maintain appointments with other healthcare professionals, so don't put your health on hold any longer.

That is the message 30-year veteran General Practitioner and Brisbane North PHN Board Chair Dr Anita Green wants patients to understand as Queensland continues to deal with COVID-19.

“Whether you need a flu jab or a regular health check, don't delay. Book in with your GP today," Dr Green said.

With the COVID-19 situation rapidly changing, Brisbane North PHN is keeping a close eye on developments and encouraging clinicians and community to be prepared.

Web series supports Queenslanders to make time for wellbeing

A new eight-part web series empowering Queenslanders to renew their focus on wellbeing during the COVID-19 pandemic has been launched by the Queensland Government.

A Boost your Healthy initiative, the My health for life Wellbeing Series supports Queenslanders to make positive changes for their health though a series of themed-episodes exploring mindfulness, goal-setting, sleep, creativity and other key topics.

Supporting senior Australians during the coronavirus pandemic

Senior Australians are at greater risk of more serious illness if they catch coronavirus. As we move towards a COVIDSafe Australia, it is important for people at greater risk to take extra steps to protect themselves.

Older people should continue to maintain 1.5 metres distance from people they do not live with and practise good hygiene. These are the best defences against coronavirus.
