It’s that time of year… EKKA TIME!!

Posted on July 27, 2017

A week of regional celebration, of food, rides fun, family… and for many the ‘EKKA after effect’!

It’s still winter here in Queensland, and the usual colds and flus are around. Put an estimated 400,000 people together in one place and the chances of catching someone’s sneeze remnants increases. Add to that junk food city and those hair raising rides and it’s no wonder a significant number of us will feel under the weather when we finally get home…

Queasy tummies, head aches, the over-indulgence of pure fun can send the body into meltdown and if its after-hours and your GP clinic is closed you might be thinking you will have to just suffer.

Well you don’t!

According to Donna Kirk, National Marketing Manager for Dial A Home Doctor Service, its easily sorted with a quick visit from one of their local Doctors.

“Our doctors come to you and can provide you with the care you need. We can even provide a medical certificate if you need time off work” highlights Donna.

“My own boys love the show and as much as I would like them to eat healthy, it’s a show and sometimes you just have to live a little! As a mum it’s nice to know I can get a Doctor if needed that night, or any other night if they aren’t feeling well –I can even get one for myself if I aren’t well and haven’t had time to get to my usual Doctor during the day”.

So if you are heading to EKKA – pop this number in your phone… you might just need it – now go have fun!
