Several Bendigo organisations have rallied together to deliver vital support for a specialist men's health clinic in our new Central site in Bendigo.
The new site sits in The Mill arcade building at 165-171 Hargreaves Street.
As well as the men's health clinic, the new site features more clinic rooms for GPs and regional Victoria's first women's sexual and reproductive health hub, podiatry, diabetes, counselling, alcohol and other drugs services and our Settlement Services which looks after the welfare of the refugee community.
The new Central site will soon be home to a Pronto rapid HIV testing clinic.
The Y Service Club of Bendigo raised money for the men's health clinic through their annual December sale of fresh Christmas trees from the YMCA Stadium in Mundy Street, Bendigo.
Andrew Hampton from William Farmers Funerals at Eaglehawk made a kind donation to the clinic.
Keith Sutherland and organisers behind the Blokes Biggest Ever Lunch in Bendigo donated a portion of proceeds from last year's event to the clinic.
The annual Run For Dad organised by Athletics Bendigo in support of BCHS and the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia donated half of the money raised to the men's health clinic.
Neil Macdonald and the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia Bendigo support group made a kind and welcome donation to the clinic too.
We thank all these wonderful organisations for supporting our endeavours to get a specialist men's health clinic up and running in our new Central site.
Getting men to think seriously about their health and take action is a key priority for the new men's health clinic.
