Doctor for local schools

13 Sep 2016 North Central Review (Kilmore), Melbourne (General News) MEMBER for Northern Victoria, Jaclyn Symes recently announced that students at Wallan Secondary College and Seymour College will have regular access to a doctor and the healthcare they need at school. Ms Symes said the schools will partner with local doctors who will visit the schools one day a week, with students able to get the advice, treatment and referrals to specialists they need. Having a doctor at their school will give students reliable healthcare, reduce the pressure on working parents and GPs, and help the students identify and address their health concerns early, Ms Symes said. Happy, healthy and resilient students learn better, stay in school longer and achieve more. Licensed by Copyright Agency. You may only copy or communicate this work with a licence.
