My Health For Life
Access group sessions in your area to reduce the burden of chronic disease
MH4L works in partnership with general practice and is a practical extension of the advice given to patients by GPs and Practice Nurses; allowing participants to better understand their lifestyle risks and action their health goals.
GPs will be kept informed of their patient’s progress with letters sent via secure messaging when the patient has enrolled in the program, and once they have completed the program (and if they withdraw).
Want to refer your patients to the program?
GP referrals are sent to the MH4L team at Diabetes Queensland via Medical Objects or fax 07 3506 0909.
Although GP referral is recommended, referrals can also be made by a practice nurse, allied health professional or the patient themselves by contacting 13 RISK or visiting the website to complete a health check.
Patients that self-refer into the program will require GP consent if they have any of the following:
- mental health issue
- current acute illness (i.e. cancer)
- surgery within the last 12 months
- high blood pressure either >160 systolic or >100 diastolic.
My Health for Life group sessions are currently being held in the following areas:
- Sunshine Coast
- Wide Bay
- Hervey Bay
- Central Queensland
