We all hear plenty about Movember each year - and regularly see lots of people getting into the spirit and sporting moustaches for a few weeks.
A great way to bring awareness and action to men’s health issues, the Movember campaign has funded over 1,250 projects since 2003 that cover problems that affect men - such as mental health, suicide prevention, as well as prostate and testicular cancers.
We’re coming to the end of the month, though - and here at Cambridge Family Health we want to be sure to keep that focus on men’s issues all year round.
This is why we are particularly excited to announce that Dr Jamie Ioane has joined the team and is accepting new patients - so for those who prefer to see a male GP, you can now make an appointment.
Born and raised in Christchurch, Jamie completed a Bachelor of Science and a Postgraduate Diploma in Anatomy and Neuroscience at Otago University, before attending Auckland University for medical school. He worked in New Plymouth as a house officer and then became the Psychiatry registrar for the region. Since then, he has had the pleasure of working in Wellington, Porirua and Lower Hutt hospitals before making the move to the Waikato.
Jamie is particularly interested in old-age mental health, neurodegenerative disorders, dementia, and the use of health technology.
“Every patient comes to us with their own unique set of needs. My goal is to help patients reach their potential for the best outcomes possible.”
As a practice, Cambridge Family Health supports and provides services for men, covering family planning advice, prostate checks, PSA monitoring, cardiovascular screening and risk assessment, mental health support, and much more.
Not had an appointment in a while? It might be a good time to check in with your GP.
