When did you last get checked? 🤔

One of my specialties is sexual health. Did you know that only 34% of young people have ever had a sexually transmitted infection (STI) test?

STI rates are increasing in Queensland and you can help reduce this. Testing is simple and easy and could involve a urine test, a swab or a blood test.

It’s important to check for STI’s at least once a year or after each new partner. Treatment is available and depending on the infection it could just mean a course of antibiotics. If left untreated, you’re at risk of spreading it to others but can also lead to long term health effects such as trouble conceiving later in life.

Don’t sit on it, test it!

If you’d like any more information or would like to get tested pop by and see me in clinic.

Take care and stay healthy x

This evening I attended an informative women’s health update event held by Pindara Private Hospital.

In case you didn’t know, the cervical screening program has changed and it’s now offered to those aged 25-74 every 5 years. You will be due your first test aged 25 or 2 years after your last PAP smear. And of course if you have any symptoms such as abnormal bleeding, pain or discharge seek medical advice sooner.

Medicine is always changing and it’s vital as a General Practitioner to keep up to date to give you the best possible treatment.

We covered other topics such as breast disease including lumps and skin changes, the new guidelines around polycystic ovarian syndrome and the controversial vaginal mesh.

I’m looking forward to sharing it all with you very soon.

If you have any concerns or questions please feel free to pop by and see me in clinic.

Take care and stay healthy 😊

Quit smoking start breathing.

Today marks World No Tobacco Day 🚭

If you’re a smoker, why not consider kicking the habit for 24 hours. You might find that you’ll choose not to pick it up the next day.

There’s plenty of reasons to quit.

Smoking has a number of adverse effects on the body, from heart disease, lung disease to throat cancer.

Luckily there’s a lot of help to break the habit including patches, medication and support. If you would like to find out more feel free to come and see me in clinic.

Take care and stay healthy 😊

Cancer Research Awareness Week

Thanks to research we now understand more about how to catch cancer early, what causes it and how best to treat it.

You can do many things to get involved in Cancer Research, from fundraising through races, bake sales or garage sales to raising awareness on social media.

In the UK I was a strong advocate for Cancer Research, completing annual fundraising races. Now in Australia, I am honoured to have been certified by the Australasian College of Dermatologists to actively perform skin cancer checks and removals.

With your continued support for research together WE WILL beat Cancer.

If you have any questions or concerns about cancer or simply need some support, please come by and see me in clinic.

Take care and stay healthy 😊
