It’s okay to ask

At times you may need more support, or some help. You might need help with laundry or other household tasks, or a lift to a doctor’s appointment.

Ask. Most people are very happy to help out, but we’re often too shy to ask.

There are many help and support services in your local community. You can access them through your doctor, community health service and local council.

If you need professional help and you can’t get hold of your doctor, contact:

  • Nurse-on-Call: 1300 60 60 24 for 24 hour health advice and information
  • Healthdirect Australia: 1800 022 222 for 24 hour health advice and information
  • Musculoskeletal Health Australia Helpline: 1800 263 265 (mon-Thu) or email
