Underbool Transport Service:

MTHCS are thrilled to re-instate the Underbool transport service for eligible community members needing to travel to Ouyen and Mildura.  Clients are able to attend appointments and do their shopping. The ability to provide the service remains dependant on volunteer and car availability, in some cases booking requests will be prioritised with medical being offered before shopping. We sincerely thank our wonderful volunteers for taking the time to facilitate this service. Clients must be eligible for this service and have a current Transport Assessment. Please provide at least 3 days’ notice for local trips and a week if you need to travel to Mildura.

MTHCS ask that our Volunteers are treated with kindness and respect, no aggressive behaviour will be tolerated. MTHCS has no tolerance for Occupational Violence.

Please contact:  0419 371 445 for further information.

Please contact the Ouyen Service Centre on (03) 5018 8600 by noon on the Friday prior to the upcoming clinic to book your appointment for Murrayville, Underbool, and Ouyen clinics.

World Allergy Week

World Allergy Week (13-19 June 2021) is a global campaign of the World Allergy Organisation (WAO), which aims to raise awareness of the impact of allergy in our communities.

The theme for World Allergy Week 2021 is Anaphylaxis and ASCIA anaphylaxis resources will be highlighted throughout the event.






Men’s Health Week                                                      WHY MEN'S HEALTH?                                                       All this emphasis on the health of boys and men - what's that about?  They're alright, aren't they?                     In many cases, the answer is no.                                      A boy born in Australia in 2010 has a life expectancy of 78.0 years while a baby girl born at the same time could expect to live to 82.3 years old.  Right from the start, boys suffer more illness, more accidents and die earlier than their female counterparts.

Men take their own lives at four times the rate of women (that's five men a day, on average).  Accidents, cancer and heart disease all account for the majority of male deaths.
