How Healthy Is Your Suburb?

Some of Melbourne’s wealthiest suburbs are home to the slimmest populations in Australia, new health data shows. But in most parts of the state, people of a healthy weight are now a minority group.

A comprehensive report mapping Australians’ health has revealed 54 – 57 per cent of people living in Melbourne’s CBD, and in the surrounding suburbs of Carlton, Docklands, Southbank, and North Melbourne are a healthy weight.

These suburbs were closely followed by Toorak, Albert Park, and Surrey Hills where people of a healthy weight still outnumber those who are overweight and obese. But only just.

As soon as you look beyond Melbourne’s leafy eastern suburbs and into rural and regional areas of the state, the scales tip.

In Thomastown, Lalor and Campbellfield in Melbourne’s north, 71 per cent of people are now overweight or obese, putting them at risk of diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Corio and Norlane in Geelong posted the same result. They were followed by Meadow Heights, Bacchus Marsh and Melton West.

Welcome to Country and Acknowledgement of Country Policy

PVH Medical is proud to introduce its Welcome to Country & Acknowledgement of Country Policy.

A “Welcome to Country” will generally involve an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander Elder or representative welcoming persons to the land by providing historical and cultural information.

A Welcome to Country may consist of a speech, traditional welcoming song, traditional dance, a musical performance or a smoking ceremony. It is a mark of respect to engage a Traditional Owner to welcome non-Aboriginal people onto their land.

An “Acknowledgment of Country” is an Acknowledgment of traditional Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander custodians of land and sea in order to pay respects to them.

As a token of our respect we have introduced a plaque acknowledging that we are on the traditional land of the Wurundjeri People. We have acknowledged the same on our Community Page
