Womens Health

A number of health promotion programs especially target women’s health needs.

Well Women’s Clinics

Women’s health is promoted via regular Well Women’s Clinics. A female GP visits Rokewood and Beeac Community Health Service every two months and provides a ‘female only’ clinic, providing key women’s health services such as cervical screening.

Breast Screen

Regular breast screening is encouraged and facilitated through a transportation service to Breast Screen Clinic in Geelong and Ballarat.

Empty Nesters

The Nesters Group is a social support group for women and provides an opportunity to gather together for a cuppa or a meal.

Women’s Health Forums

Women’s health information is also provided through regular community education forums with invited guest speakers discussing relevant topics such as breast & cervical cancer, osteoporosis, sexual health, menopause and mental health.
