Our patient list is growing. Our team of clinicians needs to grow with it.
That is why our medical team at Jean Hailes for Women’s Health – the national not-for-profit organisation dedicated to improving the health of women across the lifespan – is seeking to recruit more gynaecologists and endocrinologists to our medical centres in East Melbourne and Clayton.
The pandemic has had a huge impact on women’s health and many women are still catching up on missed health checks and screenings, either in person or via telehealth.
The effects of the pandemic on women’s health were also highlighted in the findings of the Jean Hailes National Women’s Health Survey 2020, which revealed that more than a third of women in Australia aged 25-44 did not have time to attend health appointments.
The survey also found that a significant number of women in rural and remote regions could not get medical appointments when they needed one.
It is important that women’s health needs should be addressed in a timely manner, particularly as we adjust to living with COVID-19 for the foreseeable future,”says Jean Hailes practice manager Kay Perkins.
Jean Hailes offers a full suite of clinical services, including women’s health checks and colposcopies, as well as management and treatment for menopausal symptoms, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, gynaecological and hormone problems, pelvic pain, incontinence, sexual problems, depression and anxiety.
It also provides the services of allied health professionals including a dietitian, naturopath, acupuncturist, physiotherapists and psychologists.
“Jean Hailes has built its national reputation on the excellence of our clinicians and the personalised treatments we provide,” says Ms Perkins.
We are a one-stop shop for women’s health and women really appreciate the convenience of that.”
