1300HEALTH will provide FREE medical advice over the telephone for those people in flood-affected areas who cannot access their own general practitioner.

Founder of 1300HEALTH (1300 432 584) Dr Josef Goldbaum said over the coming weeks, people would need non-urgent medical advice but may not be able to get to their own GP.

1300HEALTH is usually a pay-for-use service, but we will waive that fee for the next seven days for people in flood affected areas, Dr Goldbaum said.

Sick At Work - Presenteeism

A study commissioned by Medibank Private in May 2007 found that presenteeism cost Australian businesses and the economy over $25 Billion in 2005-2006. The economic strain associated with presenteeism is almost four times that of absenteeism.

An average of six working days of productivity each year is lost for each employee, as a result of presenteeism.
