Decembeard is here!

Bowel Cancer Australia’s Decembeard fundraiser encourages everyone to get hairy while raising awareness and funds to help beat bowel cancer.  

Beards aren’t just for hipsters, grandpas, men that ride motorbikes or people that are too lazy to shave. Anyone can help make real change happen. This December you can be involved by growing a beard or get hairy.  

Here are some different ways to be involved:

  • Grow a beard or some chin stubbles and promote your facial hair
  • Dye, decorate, shave, or trim your hair and create something amazing
  • Donate the amount you spend on shaving /grooming to Decembeard.

Once you have begun to grow your beard or some chin stubble, you can promote your facial hair to raise funds and awareness for Australia’s second deadliest cancer.  

If you are not ready to get hairy, support someone who is getting hairy for Decembeard by donating!  

Another fun way to raise awareness for Decembeard and bowel cancer is by hosting a very hairy Christmas party! Get everyone on the hair wagon by having a hair theme for your end of year celebrations.   Or other great ways to fundraise for Decembeard also include:

  • Sharing your story with bowel cancer or why you are helping to raise awareness funds.
  • Make a poster or flyer about fundraising and share this around your workplace or local community.
  • Be social and post your fundraising details on social media or spread awareness by resharing posts about Decembeard or bowel cancer.
  • And lastly, show your progress by posting photos of your beards so people know you are participating in Decembeard.  

By raising awareness and funds through Decembeard, you are helping to beat bowel cancer!

Reydon Street Medical Centre is moving on 14 February 2022

Reydon Street Medical Centre has a long history of providing high quality health care from trusted doctors from 2 Reydon Street on the corner of Newnham Road and Reydon Street in Upper Mt Gravatt.

The current health crisis means that it is no longer sustainable to continue this tradition from its original premises. To ensure we are more resilient and remain able to provide continuity of care to our patients in the face of sickness or furlough leave we need to be part of a larger organisation.

The great news is the legacy will continue and on 14 February 2022 Reydon Street Medical Centre will join the existing Holland Park General Practice at 1173 Logan Rd, Holland Park. This is part of the IPN Medical Centres network and is located just five minutes from our building.

We intend to provide the same high quality care from doctors you know and trust from more appropriate premises. You should also see the same friendly staff to look after you at the front desk.

Continuity of care and the security of our patient records is our priority. Patients records will be transferred automatically, so your doctor can continue to access them. Given the Holland Park General Practice is part of the IPN Medical Centres network, you can be assured that your health records and personal information will remain safe and secure.

We will continue to book appointments with your chosen doctor, but from Monday 14 February 2022 onwards, all existing and future appointments will take place at Holland Park General Practice.

We look forward to continuing to serve our patients from our new home.
