Lift the Lip

Lift the Lip is a public oral health awareness and prevention program that aims to reduce tooth decay through early intervention.

Child health nurses are being trained and equipped with resources to identify dental disease in young children and provide preventative oral health advice to families during child health nurse check ups. Further, as part of the program, child health nurses can now refer children directly to dental practitioners for free dental treatment.

Logan Central Oral Health Expansion

Metro South Health is investing in Oral Health Services for the Logan community with the expansion of the oral health clinic at the Logan Central Community Health Centre.

Logan Hospital car park

Metro South Health is making plans to construct a short-term car park to provide convenient, local parking for Logan Hospital staff.

Currently, staff park in several areas both on and off-site. As the demand for Logan Hospital services has grown, accessing available car parking has become increasingly difficult and time consuming, particularly for day shift staff.

Logan-Beaudesert Perinatal Wellbeing Service

Perinatal wellbeing is the emotional and mental health of women and their infants during pregnancy and early infancy. Many women will find it hard adjusting to pregnancy or a new baby. It is not uncommon to feel overwhelmed, which may affect how they look after themselves and baby.
