Women’s Health Week 2023

Women’s Health Week is an annual event that raises awareness about women’s health and promotes healthy living for women of all ages and backgrounds. This year, Women’s Health Week is held from the 4th to the 8th of September, and the theme is “Grow your knowledge”, which focuses on helping women make informed decisions about their health care.

The general practitioners at Kirrawee Doctors are committed to providing comprehensive, individualised healthcare services for women in Kirrawee and the Sutherland Shire. In celebration of Women’s Health Week, we want to emphasise the importance of women’s health, share valuable insights, and provide information about compassionate services at Kirrawee Doctors.
