Michelle Turpin’s high cholesterol and diabetes was getting “a bit out of control” when she was referred to the Royal Flying Doctor Service Tasmania’s rural health program.
She dropped two kilograms in the first week alone, started eating breakfast and boosted her walking time to improve her overall fitness.
“I’m feeling a hundred per cent better – I can keep going pretty much all day now,” the George Town local says.
Other services in rural areas
While the key focus of Primary Health Tasmania’s dedicated rural health program is chronic conditions, we have also commissioned a range of other services available to people living in rural parts of the state.
