Gippsland Primary Health Network (Gippsland PHN) is partnering with Federation University to deliver pop-up health checks to the Latrobe community.
Portable health check clinics will be ‘popping up’ in the major towns of Traralgon, Morwell and Moe offering free, 15-minute health checks by nursing students from Federation University – supervised by a registered nurse.
The nurses will conduct a basic check that will potentially identify any early warning signs. If required, the nurse will recommend a visit to a local health service for a more comprehensive assessment.”
Gippsland PHN Chief Executive Officer, Amanda Proposch, said the aim of the initiative was to increase awareness amongst the community that regular health checks with a doctor or nurse could help identify early signs of illness or disease.
