UQ health and rehabilitation clinics open to public
THE need to remain in the workforce longer and prevent chronic disease has increased the focus on improving our health and lifestyle choices.
Yet while a plethora of information is accessible, it is only useful if you know why it is important to you and your health.
A health professional can help guide you on your journey to good health.
Individualised healthcare and rehabilitation options are available to the general public at The University of Queensland Health and Rehabilitation Clinics (UQHRC).
The focus of the UQHRC is to improve the health and well-being of every client across the age span.
This is evident in the quality care and independent advice provided in association with UQ's excellence in teaching and research.
At the UQHRC, clients have access to evidence-based clinical assessments, technology and rehabilitation approaches across the professions of Audiology, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, and Speech Pathology. When accessing the knowledge and skills of our qualified professionals clients also contribute to the training of the next generation of practitioners.
We believe personalised care should meet the needs of the individual and the community as a whole.
An example of this is UQ's new Telerehabilitation Clinic, which enables rehabilitation services to be delivered via the internet. This allows improved accessibility for people who otherwise may not be able to access services due to issues such as limited mobility or geographical restrictions.
This is but one example of the UQHRC's commitment to providing the best possible healthcare outcomes for its clients.
Free on-site parking and public transport connections make accessing the UQHRC - located at UQ's St Lucia campus - easy.
No referral is necessary and Health Care and Pensioner Concession Card discounts are available on all services.
