This International Women’s Day who are you appreciating?
I am very fortunate to be surrounded by some great female mentors and colleagues at work. This is Annie, she is the head receptionist at Southport Metro Medical, a real credit to her profession offering all patients a friendly welcome. She always makes sure my clinic runs smoothly and in the midst of Chinatown she’s also a great help with translating.
Be sure to pop by and say hello 👋. Wishing you all a great day.
One of the most rewarding aspects of being a GP is being able to follow someone’s life journey. This beautiful lady has continued to pursue her hopes and dreams of becoming an actress and has not let anything stand in her way. Her continued drive and determination has landed her a leading role in Marvel’s next movie. I couldn’t be more proud! Very well done and congratulations Bec 🥳🎉 Take care and stay healthy 😘
It’s so tempting to fall into the same routine week in week out without setting yourself challenges or goals. This can often make us feel underwhelmed and unmotivated to push ourselves to success.
Try writing yourself a short list of things you’d like to achieve by the end of the week. It’ll give you objectives and purpose and so by the time it reaches Friday, you’ll be able to look back and celebrate how much you’ve done.
Calling all Tradies 🗣️ 🔊 It’s Tradies National Health Month! 💪

This month is all about raising awareness and keeping you fit and strong. If you have any muscular aches or pains it could be time to see a physiotherapist or if you haven’t had a check up in a while pop by and see me in clinic.
Lets keep the nation’s construction, plumbing and gas works running smoothly!
On an average day we take over 20,000 breaths. If you’re a smoker, a proportion of those breaths will be filled with toxic chemicals such as nicotine, ammonia, formaldehye and carbon monoxide, chemicals which sound like they belong in a science experiment not your body.
This week I’m encouraging you to reduce your cigarette consumption and see for yourself what difference it’ll make to your lungs and energy. The more oxygen your body is able to take in, the more energy you’ll have and the healthier you’ll be.
If you would like more help and advice, please pop by and see me in clinic.
