All about women’s health at Taylors Arm

The old Taylors Arm Hall was a great venue to share key women’s health information.

THROUGH its work with the Taylors Arm community post drought, fires and flood in recent years, the Mid North Coast Local Health District (MNCLHD) Disaster Recovery Team identified that many women were unable to access health services due to farm or work commitments.

The team recently collaborated with the MNCLHD Women’s Health team and the Taylors Arms Hall Committee to create a Well Women’s Day at Taylors Arm.

On Saturday 4 November, a large number of women dropped in to the community hall to enjoy a generous morning tea and a chat about women’s health and wellbeing.

A vast amount of information was available relating to women of all ages and stages of life.

Handouts and appointments were offered for many free services such as cervical screening, child and family health services, breast screening, mental health support, farmgate wellbeing service, alcohol awareness, telehealth services, disaster recovery and Red Cross advice on coping with a heatwave.

Mid North Coast Women’s Health Nurse, Annette Heather, was kept busy conducting a women’s clinic including cervical screenings (pap smear testing) in a private and convenient back room.

Gift bags loaded with information and handy nick-nacks were dispersed to all comers and, in the true spirit of sharing, a side table was laden with smart preloved clothing donated by a local and all free for the taking.

“The day went really well, and the ladies seemed to enjoy the event,” said Annette.

For more information on any of these services contact Women’s Health Nurse, Annette Heather on 6598 3538 or Integrated Mental Health, Alcohol and Other Drugs Disaster Recovery Team member Kim-Maree Doolan on 0498 470 435.
